Gilman's Jennings narrows his college list to six
Gilman All-Metro quarterback Darius Jennings has narrowed his college list to six schools: Ohio State, UCLA, Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.
The senior, who had 30 initial offers, dropped Penn State, Pittsburgh, Boston College and Connecticut from his top ten. Jennings, who will play in the Under Armour All-America Game in January, is so versatile that he was listed as an athlete. Although he could play many positions in college, he was recruited primarily as a running back or cornerback.
With his skills and a 4.4-second 40-yard dash, Jennings was rated No. 2 in the nation in the athlete category by Scout.com and No. 18 by Rivals.com. Overall, Rivals.com ranks him No. 175, which is in the top 1 percent.
Jennings, who has compiled 1,733 yards and scored 20 touchdowns for the No. 3 Greyhounds, will complete his senior year Saturday when the Greyhounds host the 95th Gilman-McDonogh game at 2:30 p.m. He has run for 1,395 yards on 148 carries and scored 17 rushing touchdowns this season. He also has completed 20 of 40 passes for 305 yards and one touchdown. He returned two kickoffs for touchdowns.
