 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  At 6-foot-7, E.J. Jenkins is known for causing trouble for opposing defenses in high school and in college. South Carolina coach Shane Beamer and his staff hope that continues in Jenkins' first season with the Gamecocks. The St. Francis University (Pennsylvania) senior transfer has made a big impression on the coaches and teammates during the offseason and the first two weeks of spring practice. "That boy E.J. is a big body right there," Gamecocks receiver Jalen Brooks said Thursday. "He is a hard worker. Ever since he has come to campus, he has been coming running extra routes. And even when we were doing things with no football, he has been trying to learn the plays. "He brings a taller aspect to the offense and is a well all-around player."

Jenkins has been showing off his versatility so far, getting reps at both receiver and tight end. He said playing tight end is a new experience, and learning things such as blocking schemes has been a challenge. Jenkins has gotten some help from USC veterans such as Nick Muse, the team's starting tight end last season, about playing the position. He is confident he can contribute at either spot. "Playing tight end or receiver, it's a matchup nightmare," Jenkins said. "I'm learning both positions...It's really been coming along well and I'm just being a student of the game and can't wait to learn more. "The way the offense is looking, playmakers are going to get the ball. Even when there is nothing there, we can make a gain out of it. Us being versatile is going to be really big this season." - Rock Hill Herald
