John Ehret Defensive End, Patrick Jenkins is a 6-2′ 285lb 3-Star player who committed to the Tigers on Monday.
Ed Orgeron and Dave Aranda wanted to see him in person first at the LSU camp this week. Jenkins said he “dominated” the one-on-one.
A Marrero native, Jenkins never had a dream school because he never thought he’d be this big of a recruit. He realized this year when the offers started coming from TCU, Texas A&M and Tennessee. Jenkins mom is a die hard LSU fan and is happy he’s staying close to home.
Why did Jenkins commit this quickly to LSU? He just wanted to give the recruiting process over with. He also doesn’t think he’ll take anymore visits. Dave Aranda likes his quickness and wants him to play 3-4 D-end at LSU.
Jenkins says top Louisiana D-linemen, 4-Star Jaquelin Roy and 4-Star Jacobian Guillory, will commit to LSU.
