Chip Towers of the AJC is reporting that big John Jenkins, the highly coveted 6-4, 340 lb. JUCO lineman from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, has decommited from Oklahoma State.
From Towers' tweet:
JUCO DT John Jenkins tells me he dropped Ok.St. Visiting UM, UGA and UF next 3 wkends. Said he's high on the Dogs. Likes AU, too.
It's now down to Miami, Florida, Auburn and the Dawgs. I have no idea how long Florida has been in his ear, and not sure if Randy Shannon recruited this guy before his ouster and if Al Golden just recently got aggressive with him (as much as I hate South Florida, January is a mighty fine damn month for an "official visit" to these parts. Obviously, this kid is smart, and stone crabs are yummy...) As for Auburn? You can never under estimate the power of straight cash.
Get this guy, and we've got the foundation that everything involving the 3-4 defense is built around. The implications are tremendous. A true nose tackle frees up our veteran linemen who have been playing out of position, especially DeAngelo Tyson. This would also give us the luxury of developing Kwame Geathers into the nose position.
C'mon, down big John. I can assure you that snow and ice in these parts are the exception, not the rule.
