As always, keep track of both the stats and roster countdowns in the Offseason Hub!


Jordan Jenkins is a redshirt freshman running back from Lindale, Texas. He should have three years of eligibility remaining, and Baylor’s website has him listed at 6-foot-1, 220 pounds. While at BU, he is majoring in computer science and made the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll in the fall of 2021. 

Baylor has a deep running back room this year, but our own Travis Roeder had this to say about Jenkins, “A freak athlete on a similar level as Taye [McWilliams], the question with Jenkins has been his feel for the position and whether he has the vision to execute on base zone runs. Because of his size and power, he’s really good out on the edge but hasn’t yet demonstrated the natural ability between the tackles that you need to succeed in this offense. He’s still young and has time, and perhaps by the fall, he will be a really good option, but I don’t know that he’s ready yet for the primetime against Baylor’s better opponents this fall. He’s tremendously talented and athletic, just needs to hone his instincts between the tackles.”

Jenkins was the No. 10 running back in the nation, according to 247.

Jenkins was a star at Lindale High School. While en route to a 14-2 record and a trip to the state championship game, Jenkins exploded for 2,938 yards and 52 touchdowns on the year. He had one playoff game in 2020, in which he scored nine touchdowns. As a junior, Jenkins rushed for 1,422 yards and 27 touchdowns. He was a four-star prospect, the No. 27 player in Texas, and the No. 10 running back in the nation, according to 247. He was the third overall running back in the state, according to Dave Campbell. Jenkins chose Baylor over BYU and Houston and redshirted the 2021 season.
