Defensive end Jordan Jenkins from Harris County High School in Hamilton, Ga., has committed to Georgia.
He made the announcement live on “The Next Class 2012″ on Fox Sports South.
“It was Georgia and Alabama,” said Jenkins, who’s considered the fifth-best defensive end prospect in the nation by Scout.com. “They were neck-and-neck my senior year. I made the decision last week.”
Alabama was once considered the favorite to land Jenkins. So what happened for him to change his mind? It started with his family’s opinion.
“They didn’t exactly feel safe with me going to Alabama,” Jenkins said. “I love Alabama to death. I never would have thought I was going to Georgia.”
Jenkins said he changed his mind and decided last week Georgia would be his pick.
“It’s a better fit for me and my family together,” he said. “I don’t want to go some place my mom is worried about me all the time. Something about Georgia just drew me out. I’d just love the chance to play for Georgia on the upswing. That’s one of the things that I’m really excited about.”
