Four-star running back Daniel Jenkins (5-9, 171, 4.5) from Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde will be taking his first official visit this coming weekend. Things have been heating up on the recruiting trail.
For Jenkins' senior season, he has rushed for approximately 600 yards and 10 touchdowns in five games. Even though Jenkins missed his last game, he is still among the leaders in scoring in his league.
Rancho Verde is a perfect 6-0 and Jenkins is a large part of the reason why and that is why he sat out last game to nurse a banged shoulder. Rancho Verde head coach Patrick Duffy wanted to sit him down for precautionary reasons, but he could have played if called upon.
On the recruiting trail things are picking up for Jenkins.
"Washington called me the other night to set up a visit," Jenkins said. "They told me they will offer me while on my visit. I have to call Washington back if I take the visit."
"Arizona State came by the school on Friday," Jenkins said. "My coach told me they love me, but this coming weekend, (October 24th), I will be taking an official visit to Arizona."
"I was supposed to visit Nevada this past weekend (October 17th) but had to cancel," Jenkins said. "I'm not sure if I will reschedule because I am going to commit to Arizona on my visit."
Well if this comes to pass the Wildcats will be getting an outstanding player who is a difference maker.
As a junior, Jenkins rushed for 1,014 yards on 111 carries and scored 15 rushing touchdowns. He had over 2,000 all-purpose yards and 24 touchdowns on the year.
Jenkins' performance saw him earn all-league honor as both a running back and cornerback. He was also selected second-team all-CIF.
Jenkins earned a spot on the Rivals.com California Preseason Top 100 for the class of 2009 landing as the Golden State's No. 31 prospect at any position.
