Jenkins Getting Attention From Toledo

Toledo head coach Tim Beckman wants a fast defense with athletic players, and he wants to run a spread offense that gets the ball in the hands of fast playmakers. To run this kind of an offense and defense, it should be no surprise that Coach Beckman and his staff has been recruiting a lot of "athlete" type of players. One such player is Martin Jenkins.

Toledo head coach Tim Beckman wants a fast defense with athletic players, and he wants to run a spread offense that gets the ball in the hands of fast playmakers. To run this kind of an offense and defense, it should be no surprise that Coach Beckman and his staff has been recruiting a lot of "athlete" type of players. Centennial High School athlete Martin Jenkins is no exception.

The Atlanta, GA native is 5-9 and 166 pounds, and has been timed at 4.35 seconds in the forty yard dash. He is being recruited to Toledo by assistant coach Steve Clinkscale, and is being recruited as a possible cornerback, wide receiver, slot receiver, and punt/kick returner.

Jenkins has offers from Middle Tennessee, Syracuse, Toledo, and Western Carolina. He's also hearing from schools such as Duke, East Carolina, Florida, Georgia Tech, Indiana, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Wake Forest.

While Jenkins has not visited Toledo's campus yet, he does plan on doing so at some point this summer or fall. And while he does not know a lot about Toledo, he has formed an opinion already. "(Toledo) seems like a great place to be," Jenkins told Rocket Digest. He added, "I love the coaches."

Jenkins did not make it up to a camp at Toledo this summer, but he did attend camps at Florida, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Wake Forest. Between the camps and his own work outs, Martin is working on getting bigger and stronger for his senior season this fall. He also noted that he needs to be more focused to have an outstanding season.

Despite four scholarship offers in, Jenkins does not have any favorites, and is not sure what official visits he might take this fall. He also does not have a timeframe for making a decision. "Just whenever I feel comfortable doing so with no doubts," Jenkins said about a commitment in the future. He also added, "A goal is by the end of the season I would like to be committed, but if that does not work out then it will not be a big deal."
