Q&A: Janorris Jenkins

Pahokee, Florida's Janoris Jenkins was a recent participant at the Rutgers Summer camp. The 5'10 170 lb CB was arguably the most impressive player at the event. He demonstrated not only lock down cover skills, but a fiery attitude that makes this relative unknown, one of the top players at his position in the country.

SOR: If you could name a list of 10 dream schools at this point in time, who would they be?
JJ: Clemson, LSU, Louisville, Oklahoma, Florida, Rutgers, Auburn, West Virginia, Miami, and Wake Forest.

SOR: Does your wanting to play early take precedence over those dream schools:
JJ: Yes, I want to go to a place where they want me to come in and help improve the team. I am a football player. I want to play and get on the field.

SOR: Why is it that players like yourself and Martavious Odoms are considered top regional players, but have not broken in to that top national level amongst the scouts.
JJ: I think coming from Pahokee, we don’t get the attention that kid from other schools get. We feel that we are underrated. But all we can do is go out and play the best football we can and hope for good results.

SOR: Do you feel that you are amongst the best DB in the country.
JJ: I feel that I am the best CB in the country.

SOR: Do you feel that playing with Martavious has helped make you a better player.
JJ: Absolutely. We work really hard with our workouts and practice. Some days I get the better of him. Other days, he gets the better of me. Competing with him makes us both better players.

SOR: At the camp, it seemed that late in the sessions, some guys would fatigue. But you seemed fresh even in the later sessions. Talk about your conditioning
JJ: It is about training in the heat and loving the game. We love to play the game. We respect the game. So I go all out and do my best all the time.

SOR: Who are some of the players that impressed you at the camp?
JJ: The WR from New Jersey (Tim Wright). He was smooth. I also liked the QB’s DC Jefferson and Jacory Harris.

SOR: People made a big deal, saying you were the only player capable of stopping Miami Northwestern’s Aldarius Johnson. What did you think of Aldarius.
JJ: He has great size and speed. The one thing he needs to improve on is he gives you tips on his routes. So after a while, I could anticipate his breaks. But other than that, he is a talented player.

SOR: Is it important that you go to a TOP 20 program.
JJ: Not at all. Don’t get me wrong, I want to be around competitors. But I also want to go to a place where I can help elevate a program.

SOR: What are some of the factors that will impact where you make your decision?
JJ: The important things for me are the coaching staff, for the place to have a family feel, and my ability to play early.

SOR: How many offers do you have right now?
JJ: I have 22 offers. A lot of them are from very good places. But I cannot remember where all of them are from.

SOR: What is next up for you?
JJ: I work out everyday with weights at 9AM. In the afternoon, we run routes with some of our teammates. In terms of football, I am going to the Florida State camp on July 11th, and Friday Night Lights on June 20th.
