Jenkins' Decision Imminent?

Just stopped by Good Counsel to do some homework in advance of Saturday's WCAC title tilt with DeMatha. Talked to Good Counsel All-Met linebacker Jelani Jenkins about his college recruiting about to pick up, but he says that nothing is close to happening.

Jenkins said that after Saturday's game, he will finally be able to put his full time and effort into choosing a college. He said he has talked about setting up official visits but that none have been set.

"There's no one definite I want to go to," Jenkins said. "There are thoughts roaming in my head, but that's it right now."

While the trend for many players is to make their college choices earlier and earlier, Jenkins said he wants to take his time.

"I'm willing to take this as a blessing and take as much time as I can on it," he said. "I don't want to treat it as a curse. I want to spend as much time as I can and make the right decision.

"When I have to, I'll get it done. I want to find out as much information as I can. If that takes until signing day, that's when I'll do it."

The guess here? Look for Jenkins to make an announcement in conjunction with his participation in the Under Armour All-American Game on Jan. 4.

I am willing to bet that Mr. Jenkins knows more about what schools he's interested in than he's letting on. He's a smart and talented kid and what ever school he goes to will be getting a great student and athlete. And let's hope it's not Notre Lame.
