 Junior Jordan Jenkins and senior senior Staton Dudley committed to Texas universities to play college sports.  Jenkins will attend Baylor University, and Dudley will attend The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor.

“Being an athlete, your film is what first catches a scout’s attention, so getting that to them was a priority,” Jenkins said. “They would check your grades and maybe ask a coach what kind of a person you are.“

Jenkins is going into Baylor with a D1 offer and will play the position of running back. In college, he wants to study computer engineering.

“All of my offers had a great staff, athletic program, and a great education to give, so it came down to what school I felt most comfortable with,” Jenkins said. “Baylor was my number one for a while and so I chose them.”

After college, Jenkins wants to either explore the option of going into the NFL or to become a computer programmer.

“NFL-wise I know that [Baylor] will push me to be the best version of myself,” Jenkins said. “[Baylor also] has a really good technology course that allows job shadowing and other business opportunities for that major.”

Staton has committed to the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor due to his abilities in baseball. He has been playing baseball since 2009 and joined the varsity team during his sophomore year.

“I am blessed to say that I will be continuing my education at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor,” Staton said. “ I can’t thank my family, friends, and coaches enough for pushing me to become the player I am today.”
