Pitt places top three for defensive end Jayson Jenkins


National signing day is on the horizon, and it looks like Pitt is in a good position to make a late addition to his 2022 class, as Jayson Jenkins, a defensive end from Notre Dame High School in Lawrenceville, New Jersey, has placed the team in its first three on Saturday. Jenkins also revealed he will commit and sign on National Signing Day this next Wednesday.

“All praise be to God for all the opportunities that have been given to me to play at the next level,” Jenkins wrote in a Twitter post. “That being said, I will commit and sign on December 15th!” Very excited for what will happen in the future!

Jenkins posted her top three after paying an official visit to the Pitt campus on Friday. Jenkins’ other two finalists are ACC rival Boston College and Indiana. The rookie drew six bids in total, and the three programs that went unsuccessful included Alcorn State, Temple and Virginia Tech.

Jenkins visited Boston College, which is in a strong position as the first Power Five team to make him an offer. However, Indiana appears to be on the outside, as Jenkins was due to visit Bloomington in January, but pushed back the date of his decision to national signing day.

The 6’6 “, 257-pound defensive end holds a three-star rating from Rivals. However, he has not been rated by 247Sports or ESPN. During the 2021 season, Jenkins made 32 tackles, including 5 , 5 sacks He also forced a fumble and managed to recover a fumble in his senior campaign.

While the prospect has gone under the radar when recruiting, they have the size and ability of a playmaker to make an impact at the next level. And if Pitt is able to beat Boston College for Jenkins signing, the rookie could prove to be a great addition to an already elite defensive line.
