Admiral Farragut's Rayshawn Jenkins, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound quarterback and safety, said he accepted a scholarship offer Wednesday to play for the Bulls.

Jenkins, a state champion last year in the 110-meter hurdles and runnerup in the 300 hurdles, said he'll play free safety at USF, though he'll continue to play quarterback and occasionally receiver at Farragut. He said USF offered him two weeks ago, and he chose the Bulls over interest from Florida State, Georgia and Kansas.

"USF is a rising program, and I wanted to be a part of that," Jenkins said. "It's close to home."

Jenkins was recruited to USF by assistant Vernon Hargreaves, and he'll make much the same transition as rising sophomore JaQuez Jenkins, who was a high school quarterback at Lakewood but has made his mark at USF at safety. Jenkins knows JaQuez (no relation) and safety Jerrell Young, as well as defensive end Julius Forte.

Asked about his strengths on the field, Jenkins cited his "leadership and hard work." He said he would like to compete in track while at USF as well.
