Breaking News: Cedric Jenkins Commits to Southern Mississippi
It has now been made official. One of the state's top shooting guards and most successful player to have ever played for Coach Timmy Byrd at Reserve Christian and now Riverside Academy, Cedric Jenkins has officially verbally committed to Southern Miss and former Iowa State coach Larry Eustachy. He is 6'2" Shooter that can run a team as a point guard and is similar to Memphis guard Roburt Sallie but with a more consistent shot and better feel for the game. That is a big time comparison for the guard from Reserve, LA. If you remember Sallie is the Memphis guard that scored 31 points in their 1st round NCAA tournament game in 2009 and had 8 3's in that game. Southern Miss is absolutely getting a steal that will be one of the top guards in the C-USA for the next 4 years. After having time to adjust to college ball, Jenkins will be a all-conference player when it is all said and done. Jenkins now joins a class that includes Mississippi Mr. Basketball Rashad Perkins of Starkville HS and Mississippi Mr. Basketball Runner-Up Trency Jackson of Wingfield HS. Congratulations Cedric on your committment.
For the full story stay tuned tonight or early tomorrow after we talk with Cedric and others to get a better feel on his commitment.
