Tampa (Fla.) Chamberlin Roderick Jenrette athlete has not gotten much mention as being one of the top prospects in the Tampa area, but that could soon be about to change. He has already picked up two written offers and several additional verbal offers.
"I have written offers from Rutgers and South Florida," Jenrette said. "A lot of other schools have said that they were offering me, but I haven't seen anything in writing. Schools like Florida, Iowa, Auburn, Indiana and Georgia Tech have all said they were going to offer."
Jenrette attended the NIKE camp in Tallahassee in May where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds, did 12 reps on the bench press and posted a 30-inch vertical jump.
"Right now my top schools are Florida, Florida State, Rutgers, Iowa and Auburn," Jenrette said. "I grew up a big Florida State fan, so it would be really cool to get an offer from them, but I would definitely be cool with going somewhere else."
Jenrette plays safety and wide receiver for his high school team, but most schools are recruiting him to play safety, but not all of them.
"Most schools are telling me safety right now, but Iowa has told me that they might be interested in me playing some running back," Jenrette said. "I would prefer to play strong safety or free safety, but I will do whatever."
The 6-foot-2, 178-pound Jenrette has yet to take the SAT or ACT, which could be the reason why some schools have not extended a written offer to this point.
"I want to have a chance to play early, I know that playing time is something you earn, I just want to go to a place where I'll have a chance," Jenrette said. "I really want to go to a nice program where I feel comfortable and good academic programs."
