Welcome to Rocky Top, Ryan Jenkins

The latest UT signee is wide receiver Ryan Jenkins. For your convenience (because we're here to help), here's Brad's capsule of the young man:

RYAN JENKINS 5-11, 182 WIDE RECEIVER MARIETTA, GA (LASSITER HS)

Chose UT over: Clemson, Louisville, Houston, Mississippi State

RATINGS: 247 four stars; Rivals three stars; Scout three stars; ESPN four stars

QUICK LOOK: Unbelievably, Dooley didn't offer a four-star legacy from Atlanta who bleeds orange. Go figure? However, once Jones made Jenkins a priority, it didn't take long for him to back out on his longtime pledge to Clemson and commit to UT. Jenkins immediately began recruiting for the Vols, trying to lure buddies like Carl Lawson, Peyton Barber and Joshua Dobbs. Those labors haven't paid off yet, but Jenkins also has tons of ties to next year's class. Most importantly, though, he's a player. Jenkins is the perfect slot receiver, and he is skilled enough and runs good enough routes to find himself in the mix with hard work. It would be hard to argue he isn't the team MVP of the class because he kind of got the ball rolling with the new staff.
