Tennessee has offered a scholarship to Clemson wide receiver commit Ryan Jenkins from Lassiter High School in Marietta, Ga.
Jenkins is the son of former Tennessee defensive back Lee Jenkins, who played for the Vols from 1980-82.
Former Tennessee coach Derek Dooley, who was fired last month, chose not to offer Jenkins. But new coach Butch Jones called Jenkins and offered a scholarship.
“He said I was really high on their board and they like my skillset as a receiver,” Jenkins told ESPN RecruitingNation. “Then he was selling me on the school and saying that they are a program on the rise and that he was going to try and get it turned around. He was telling me about their offense and how they plan to throw the ball.
“He told me they are going to run a pro-style offense that utilizes the no-huddle plans, and that he plans to use me in the slot like he did with Antonio Brown when he was at Central Michigan. It was a good conversation.”
Jenkins, who plans to take an official visit to Clemson on Jan. 11, is still committed to the Tigers. He hasn’t decided if he will visit Tennessee.
“Moving forward I am still committed to Clemson and they are my No. 1,” Jenkins said. “I am just considering Tennessee.”
