Before the dead period starts next week plenty of coaches have been making the trip to Baldwin (Pa.) to see Sterling Jenkins. The standout offensive tackle says coaches from two prominent Big Ten schools came by earlier this week.
"Coach (Charles) London from Penn State and Coach (Ed) Warinner and Coach (Luke) Fickell from Ohio State came through recently," the 6-foot-8, 296-pound Jenkins said. "Coach Fickell is an all-around nice guy and is easy to get along with. It doesn't have to be football talk with him. Coach Warinner wants me to get me over to Ohio State. I think it's cool that he is always trying to get me to visit.
"I like Coach London and Coach Mac (McWhorter) because they are always trying to get me out to Penn State. They are really polite and we have a good relationship."
The Buckeyes and Nittany Lions are two of the six schools that stand out to Jenkins.
"My top six is Ohio State, Michigan, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Ole Miss and Penn State," Jenkins said. "If any school comes in and really interests me I'll add them to my list.
"I would say that my six top schools cover a really broad spectrum. There really isn't a clear leader between Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State because one day I'll like one school more than the others and then the next day I'll like another school. I've seen those three a lot, along with Pittsburgh. Those are the places in my top six that I've really seen."
Naming a list of top schools usually means the prospect is closing in on a decision, but Jenkins says he is still going to take his time.
"I'm not really thinking about an early decision," Jenkins said. "With these six being so broad, I don't think I can narrow it down right now. I think I'll just have to continue growing those relationships with those coaches and make my decision in about a year or so."
Jenkins has taken a few visits this season but doesn't have any others planned right now.
"I'm thinking about going to Penn State's junior day," he said. "Ohio State has been saying that I should check out their basketball team. I think that would be a pretty cool experience but it's really all about transportation."
Jenkins is ranked as the No. 28 prospect in the 2015 Rivals100.
