recruit757 Fab 30: Jalen Jennings – Landstown High School #14
by Andy Hilton, recruit757
Landstown had their best run in over a decade, going undefeated in the regular season and making a playoff run before falling to Class 6 state championship runner up Oscar Smith in the Region A final.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in the 757. We’ve scoured the region for talent for almost ten years now, keeping an eye on the best of the best, but also looking for opportunities to connect athlete and high school programs with college coaches. Coming in as the #14 senior prospect region-wide is Landstown WR/DB Jalen Jennnings.

Landstown head coach Tommy Reamon calls Jalen an “exceptional talent” and its easy to see why. As a defensive back, Jennings is long, rangy and quick. As a wide receiver, Jennings’ speed and hands put him at an advantage over most high school defensive backs.
Coming into his senior season, Jennings will be relied upon to take over where Brent Stukes (Norfolk State) and Joseph White (UVA) left off in leading the team to success in the 2017 season. Landstown is breaking in a new quarterback, and the core of their offensive line (most notably Donavan McPeek and Braden Rupert) graduated.
Coach Reamon will rely on Jalen Jennings for senior leadership on both sides of the ball. Jennings has to come through in order to keep the Eagles soaring.
