ASU’s Jenkins hopes promise turns to performance

MONTGOMERY, Alabama -- Alabama State head football coach Brian Jenkins was noticeably jovial as national signing day came to a close.

Jenkins took over just weeks before signing day last season and said his most important recruits were the players he inherited.

Jenkins said he and his staff had more time to work this time around, making a big difference in 2016.

“Last year, we had to get in where we fit in,” Jenkins said. “This year, we were about to sit back and really evaluate the players that we needed to upgrade this team and set a plan of action of going after those guys.”

Alabama State’s festivities began with a live three-hour broadcast announcing the signees on the school’s athletic website, followed by a news conference and ending with a gathering of fans and alumni at the Club Lounge at ASU Stadium.

The Hornets signed 17 players on Wednesday, including a trio of players from Glenville High School near Cleveland.
