New Football Verbal: Jaylen Jennings

BG has a new verbal, and he plays running back.  Jaylen Jennings is a 5'10" RB from Columbus, where he currently attends Harvest Preparatory School.  He's a 3-star recruit and the highest ranked player in BG's current class, based on 247 and FWIW.

247 reports offers from Indiana, Purdue, Marshall, Buffalo, Kent, Air Force, Army as well as two Ivy League schools.

WBNS did this story in September of last year where he was the Athlete of the Week and had 800 yards and 10 TDS.

Here's a story where he played as a running QB as a sophomore (in a pinch) and had 100 yard rushing games.

His twitter profile says he had 1,623 yards on 163 carries and 22 TDs.  He was 1st Team All-State, District Offensive Player of the Year, and all-Metro. Harvest plays in Division V in the OHSAA.  He was one of 2 JRs to be on that all-state team, with the other one from Otsego.

Welcome to the Falcons, Jaylen
