Dabo's message stands out to Jenkins

Ryan Jenkins has been to Clemson a countless number of times over the last couple of years. His most recent visit was last weekend's Junior Day.

The Milton High School [Alpharetta, Ga.] rising senior went on the visit with his brother, Martin Jenkins, a junior cornerback for the Tigers.

"I had a little fun with it. My brother, he basically went on the visit with me He never got to see that stuff. At the time of his junior day, he wasn't being recruited by them. It was real fun with that," Ryan told CUTigers earlier this week.

He added, "It went good. They didn't necessarily tell me anything I didn't already know, just because I've been up there a whole bunch of times. I love going to Clemson and hearing what their coaches have to say."

It was the message from head coach Dabo Swinney that stood out the most to Jenkins.

"When coach Swinney got up there and spent some time in front of the recruits, he said he has a great vision for Clemson," Jenkins said. "He feels that they can win another national championship and the next few years."

With junior day visits to Alabama, Auburn and Tennessee also under his belt, Jenkins is done with the thing, for the meantime.

"This summer, I'm definitely going to make it up to Clemson for their camp. I'm also going to try to make it Georgia and Oklahoma State," he said.

Clemson and Louisville have offered.

"An offer could be on the way from Oklahoma State," Jenkins said. "I've been talking to coach [Todd] Monken, their offensive coordinator, and coach [Kasey] Dunn, their receivers coach.

"I like them a lot. They like me a lot, so I feel like they're close to it."

Jenkins claims no favorites, but plans on making his decision in July.

He had 25 catches for 415 yards and five touchdowns as a junior.
