Bradenton (Fla.) Southeast is known for being a football factor that churns out division 1-A prospects on a regular basis. Peter Warrick, Todd Williams, Adrian McPherson and Bosley Allen are all graduates of Southeast High who went on to play big-time college football. Running back/safety Mike Jenkins will be another athlete that can be added to that list. He already has three offers with more on the way soon.
“I have verbal offers from Iowa, Iowa State and Auburn,” Jenkins said. “My top four schools are Florida State, Miami, Nebraska, and Michigan. I like all of those teams about the same. Florida State was my favorite team growing up and my favorite player was Ed Reed.”
Jenkins isn’t listing the University of Florida in his top four but that hasn’t stopped them from recruiting him.
“Florida came by my school and the coach wants me to come to their football camp,” Jenkins said. “Miami and Florida State haven’t been by my school yet.”
Jenkins, who rushed for 210 yards on offense and made an approximate 120 tackles from his free safety spot as a junior, will camp this summer at Florida and Auburn.
