Penn State Football: Jenkins Set To Make Decision Tuesday

by on May 03, 2014 8:10 AM

Sterling Jenkins has been one of the biggest recruiting targets on Penn State's radar and he's set to decide this coming Tuesday.

The offensive lineman is expected to announce on Tuesday according to Mike Vukovcan of KDKA. Jenkins will reportedly broadcast his decision on KDKA-TV Sports at 6.

At 6-feet-8 inches and 305 pounds, Jenkins would be a formidable blocker on Penn State's offensive line in the coming years. The Pittsburgh native has reportedly narrowed his list down to a choice between two schools -- Ohio State and Penn State. Jenkins is set to visit Penn State on Monday according to several recruiting outlets.

Jenkins is rated the top prospect in the state and 34th best recruit in the 2015 recruiting class by Rivals.com. If he were to commit to Penn State, the Nittany Lions would have 13 verbal commitments in the 2015 class with nine of them being rated at the four-star level.

Similarly, Jenkins' commitment could give Penn State five of the top 11 in-state prospects. That's more than the 2011-14 recruiting classes combined.

 

"Jenkins will be a huge addition to whatever program he ends up at," FightOnState.com recruiting expert Greg Pickel says. "He's a legit 6-foot-8 with a frame that can easily allow him to bulk up from his current 305. His recruitment marks the first battle of presumably many between James Franklin and Urban Meyer, and while securing Jenkins' pledge won't make or break either program, it will certainly provide for a burst of recruiting momentum and a potential All-Big Ten tackle pick down the road."
