Jordan Jenkins,'s sixth best overall defensive end and the fifth best prospect in the state of Georgia, will make an announcement as to his signing day intentions Monday night in a four-way race between Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Auburn.

Jenkins, a Harris, Georgia product (Harris County High School) spoke with SB Nation's Bud Elliott following the Under Armour All-American game, and implied that he's narrowed his list down to two potential schools, but didn't imply which two, although Rivals lists his "high" interest schools as only the Gators and Crimson Tide. The weak side defensive end said he's comfortable with a standard 4-3 (Florida, Auburn) or a 3-4 scheme (Georgia, Alabama), and had nice things to say about all four suitors:

"I really like Alabama's coaching staff, and I like the feel of Tuscaloosa. Auburn is close to home and also has a good feel. I like Florida's engineering program and the location. And I have a good relationship with the coaches at Georgia, as well."
