With football season starting up, it isn't uncommon for recruiting to slow down. Sterling Jenkins and Pittsburgh (Pa.) Bladwin open the season today and the offensive tackle is more than ready to get back on the field.
"We open up on Friday against Peter's Township," said the 6-foot-8, 296-pound Jenkins. "They beat us in the past but we've counting down the days for this one. I've never felt so prepared for a game."
With 12 offers in hand at this point, recruitment is going very well for Jenkins.
"There's nothing really new in recruitment lately," he said. "I talked to Coach Warinner from Ohio State the other day and everything is good with them. I talked to Tennessee a little bit earlier this summer."
It can be very tough for prospects to take visits during the season but Jenkins will be taking one in the very near future.
"I want to go to some games coming up," Jenkins said. "I'm going to the Pittsburgh game on Monday with some of my friends. I think it will be pretty cool to see a game like that first hand. I'm so used to being in the game that it will be interesting to be able to sit back and watch it."
Jenkins has offers from schools like Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Pittsburgh and Toledo with more on the way.
Jenkins was on of the few underclassmen to participate in the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge presented by Under Armour at Soldier Field in Chicago.
