Jenkins showed off his shooting stroke at the camp. He has range to well beyond the 3-point arc and a high release point that gives him consistency. The progression in Jenkins’ game recently is his ball handling ability. He has progressed into a combo guard that score on the wing or handle as a lead guard. He attacked gaps and finished at the rim well. Given his size and skill, Jenkins should be a name to be followed in the Atlanta-Metro area heading into his senior year.

Jenkins is maturing his game much as like his maturing physically. Standing now at 6-3 he has the length to be able to defend the wing, but is developing his ball handling skill to become a true combo guard. His specialty still centers around his ability to hit the jumper from beyond the arc. However, what is impressing us is his confidence with his ball handling which allows him to be a true dual threat back court player.
