T-High grad Teven Jenkins making a name for himself on the football field in the Big 12

News

 Topeka High graduate Teven Jenkins wasn’t highly recruited by K-State or KU when he was coming out of high school, but Oklahoma state was on him early. He wrapped up his redshirt-sophomore season yesterday and has emerged as not only the team’s best offensive lineman, but a big time NFL prospect. KSNT’s Reina Garcia talked to him recently about who he credits from home as part of his growing success.

“well I have a lot of people to thank for that honestly, because a lot of people helped me get here, even when I was a little kid, I had extra people helping me out, my dad helping me out. I say, because under the radar offensive lineman really don’t get that much looked at as people who actually score and do the glory work, they get the most attention,” Jenkins said. 

Obviously, Jenkins has some big choices to make soon, he was named to the all Big 12 conference honorable mention team this year and will likely be on many teams NFL draft boards if he isn”t already.
