Recruiting: Jordan Jenkins Commits to Georgia

In somewhat of a shocking decision, elite 2012 defensive end Jordan Jenkins committed to Georgia earlier tonight on Fox Sports South’s "The New College Football Show: Next Class 2012." Jenkins chose Georgia over Florida, Alabama and Auburn.

The 6'3", 245-pounder was recruited by Will Muschamp to play the Buck position, and would have competed for serious playing time right away. The possibility of early playing time and his interest in pursuing engineering in college had many believing the Gators would win out in the end.

Ultimately, the Harris County product elected to stay in state, an impressive recruiting victory for Georgia over runner-up Alabama, and, more specifically, Todd Grantham over Kirby Smart.

Florida will now set its sights on Dante Fowler, Darius Hamilton, Leonard Williams, Jamal Marcus and Alex McCalister to fill the holes at defensive end.
