    From our own YungCoach:

    Not a whole lot out there on him. There was a quick mention in a Rivals.com article:

    And UMHoops.com has an interview with him.

    Good info by Yung on this one. Hopefully we'll get some interviews soon. Looks like he's got nice length.

    Kid can play and has a huge upside. Long, athletic, skilled...added strength and weight and could be headed to next level after college.

    Not a whole lot out there right now that I'm finding. Watching that video, I'm impressed with his athleticism and his left hand. Would love to see more of his shooting. Right now I'm picturing him being a slashing type swingman. I found an article from the CMU Rivals site that has some interesting info.

    Sounds like both Michigan and Stanford were interested as well, but no idea if they actually offered.

    Jenkins did an interview with UMHoops.com in March.

    Chris Jenkins is a versatile wing out of U of D Jesuit High School, Jordan Morgan’s alma mater. I got a chance to talk with him about the recruiting process, what he thinks of Michigan, and his relationship with Morgan.

    Describe your game. I kind of changed my game from last year. I’m really letting the game come to me. I start the game by shooting a couple of jumpshots to see if my shot’s falling. If it’s not falling, I turn into a slasher — I slash to the basket and I try to get some midrange shots in there and try to take it to the hole to get to the free throw line. But if my shots are falling, then it’s going to be a long day at the 3-point line (laughs).

    This is the video cnbuff410 just posted. Love the spin move at the beginning. Kid looks skinny.

    The knock on Jenkins in Big 10 country seemed to be that he was soft. He wasn't a guy who mixed it up inside or taking it to the basket. More of a finesse player. Later articles and blogs I saw made it sound like he became more aggressive.

    I think he's a really good fit for us and the Pac-12. Lots of upside here. You can't coach his length and versatility. You can't coach a scorer's mentality that allowed him to put up 28.3 in Detroit basketball last year. He probably needs some time in the weight room and some work on his ball handling so he can play a little point and also lead the break when the opportunity's there.

    Would be amazing if he is a very reliable 3pt shooter.

    Saw him and his dad on Friday while I was waiting for the bus but couldn't figure out who it was.

    Maybe 2.

    I was just thinking that maybe Jenkins knows Javontae Hawkins from playing ball in Michigan. Flint's only about an hour from Detroit.
