Cox DB/WR Keontae Jenkins (2020 WR/DB 5-10 160) spent some time on the shelf during the 2018 season, but that hasn’t slowed his recruitment.
The highly regarded Class of 2020 athlete and younger brother of Florida State corner Levonta Taylor has his offer list continue to grow, and he’s now trying to prioritize his options.
His most recent visits involved a trip to Pennsylvania to see Penn State and Pitt.
“Those visits were great,” he said. “I’m going with the flow, really.”
On Monday, Jenkins added an offer from the Baylor Bears. That offer adds to a pile that’s almost unmanageable. It’s a good problem to have.

At the Nike Opening Region in New Jersey over the weekend, Jenkins won the fastest man competition with a 4.42 forty yard dash. His vertical was 35 inches and according to some sources, he’s ranked as the #1 cornerback in the state of Virginia.
East Carolina, Pitt, Michigan, UNC, Virginia, Liberty and Rutgers have added offers to Jenkins since the beginning of the year, putting his offer total at 25 including schools like Virginia Tech, Florida State, Louisville, Auburn, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Florida and TCU.
Jenkins’ younger brother Nate Evans is a Class of 2021 DB/WR and teammate at Cox High School. Evans is in double digits for scholarship offers himself, including Virginia, Virginia Tech, Florida State, Liberty, Old Dominion, Pitt, ECU and Baylor.
That little twist makes his recruitment even more interesting. Does he pick Florida State, where he can play alongside Levonta? Does he pick a school where he can bring his younger brother along? Or does he carve his own path?
Ready to make a decision ✍🏾

Jenkins has talked on and off since the beginning of the year about narrowing his list or even making an outright decision on his college destination. We should have more news on his college decision soon.
