6-6 De’Riante Jenkins, the former Lake Marion two sport star now focusing on basketball in Orlando, will not be signing in the spring. His new signing date is November because he has reclassifed from the 2015 class to the 2016 class.
And with that being the case, Jenkins is not rushing to a decision. At one point last month after getting a Clemson offer, it appeared a commitment would happen soon than later. But Jenkins said he decided to reclassify after getting the Clemson offer
“Clemson, if I was to go there, wanted me to do a post graduate (year),” Jenkins said.
Jenkins has offers from Clemson, Houston, Virginia Tech, East Carolina and South Florida. He’s also drawing interest now from Tennessee. And he said USC has been in touch with his AAU coach but has not had direct contact with him recently.
Jenkins said Clemson is his favorite and is really the only school he’s considering right now. “Clemson is home, and I’d really like to go back home.”
This season Jenkins said he’s averaging about 16 points per game.
