In the 100 days leading up to signing day 2015, RecruitingNation will be looking back at our ESPN recruiting rankings from 2006 to the present and count down the best player of the past 10 years at each ranking position, No. 100 to No. 1.
Jordan Jenkins, No. 67 in 2012 class
Jenkins was one of the most highly coveted defensive end prospects in the country coming out of Harris County High in Southwest Georgia. Following official visits to Tennessee, Auburn, Florida, Alabama and Georgia, the long-armed edge talent picked the home state Bulldogs over Alabama, Florida and closest to home Auburn after trailing the Crimson Tide, and Gators for much of the process with Alabama ultimately finishing a very close second. Jenkins was the headliner of the Georgia top 10 class that included Leonard Floyd, Keith Marshall, John Theus, Josh Harvey-Clemons and Todd Gurley.
Jenkins saw action in all 14 games as a true freshman in 2012 recording 31 tackles and five sacks, flashing a glimpse of what was to come in Athens.
The outside linebacker in the Bulldogs' 3-4 moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore. He responded with 45 tackles and 12 tackles for loss earning All-SEC second team honors from the conference coaches.
This season, as a junior, Jenkins again took the next step for Georgia. In 12 starts to date, the Under Armour All-America Game alumnus has 66 tackles, 22 quarterback hurries, nine tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks for the top 25 Bulldogs, and is firmly on the NFL draft radar.
Honorable mention: Damien Mama, No. 67 in the 2014 class. Mama has started three games for USC as a true freshman this season despite missing time with a knee injury. Coming out of St. John Bosco in Bellflower, Calif., there wasn't much drama with Mama's recruitment other than UCLA trying to make the last push. He chose the Trojans over BYU and Alabama on national signing day in a decision expected by nearly everybody.
