Cyclones spar with Hawks for Fla. athlete

South Fort Myers (Fla.) athlete Brodrick Jenkins did it all in his junior season for the Wolfpack. The 5-foot-10, 173-pound Jenkins earned several postseason honors for his return skills, but his ability as both a cornerback and wide receiver make him one of the more versatile prospects in the state of Florida.

Jenkins's stat line from his junior season is further proof of his versatility. He accounted for 1,400 all-purpose yards including 367 receiving and 229 rushing on limited touches. He averaged better than 17 yards per punt return and took two the distance. He averaged better than 27 kickoff return yards and took three for scores. Defensively he totaled 28 tackles and picked off three passes.

"I've got two offers already, Iowa State and Iowa. I'm looking at them and then Colorado State, I think they are going to offer," said Jenkins. "I think they all are looking at me as an athlete. I prefer to play corner."
