Illinois Fighting Illini A.J. Jenkins
Hometown: Jacksonville, Florida
Jenkins may be the best player on one of the worst teams in the conference. There is not a whole lot to be excited about in Champaign, but Jenkins is certainly worth watching.
Having an inexperienced quarterback, redshirt freshman Nathan Scheelhaase, has not slowed him down.
He is only four catches, 141 yards and two touchdowns short of setting career highs. He will surpass those numbers within the next two weeks.
His breakout game this season came against Southern Illinois with five catches for 114 yards and one touchdown.
