Jenkins to the Big East

Four-star power forward Kris Jenkins has found his fit in the Big East.

Villanova has landed its first 2013 recruit in Jenkins, 6-6, 245-pounds out of Washington D.C. Gonzaga High School.

A physical player with a high basketball IQ and broad skill base, Jenkins fits the mold of Villanova big men with his ability to make plays both inside and away from the basket.

Jenkins chose Villanova over Clemson, Miami, Rutgers and Xavier.

He is the No. 110 ranked prospect by 247Sports and has a No. 77 Industry Average Ranking.
