Jenkins switching to linebacker at Palmetto Prep

WILLIAM JENKINS SIGNS his letter of intent with Palmetto Prep while joined by, from left, his father and mother, William and Ernestine Jenkins, and his grandmother, Bessie Jenkins. Standing, from left, are North Central head football coach Louis Clyburn, NCHS principal David Branham, Jenkins younger brothers, Tyrek and Jeremiah, and NCHS assistant football coach Robbie Cash.
It looks like the Clyburn family will be on the lookout for new babysitters. When William Jenkins signed a letter of intent with Palmetto Prep, it not only took the leading rusher in the history of North Central High School away from Louis Clyburn’s football program, but it left him with one less of his former players to watch over his four children. "It’s unbelievable the kind of a young man that William has become," Clyburn said following Jenkins’ signing ceremony held inside the NCHS gymnasium.
