LSU picks up 11th 2018 commitment in 3-star WR Jaray Jenkins

Jaray Jenkins

LSU landed another commitment on Monday night.

The Tigers picked up their 11th commitment of the 2018 recruiting class when three-star wide receiver Jaray Jenkins announced on Twitter that he has committed to the program.

 The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Jenkins, from Jena (La.) High, currently has nine other offers, including Mississippi State and Kansas. He reportedly also has received interest from Nebraska, Auburn, Arkansas and Texas A&M, among others.

Jenkins made his commitment not long after receiving an offer from LSU on Monday night. His primary recruiter is offensive line coach Jeff Grimes.

Jenkins, according to 247Sports Composite, is a top-70 wide receiver prospect nationally and a top-20 Louisiana prospect.

Jenkins had 39 catches for 750 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior last season.

Jenkins’ commitment adds to an LSU class on a hot start to its 2018 recruiting class, which 247Sports currently ranks No. 4 nationally and first in the SEC. Three-star offensive lineman Cole Smith on Saturday was the Tigers’ most recent commitment before Jenkins.

Jenkins is LSU’s first wide receiver in the class. Four-star wide receiver Kenan Jones had been committed for a month before decommitting late last month.
