Arrington Jenkins (Miami, Fla./Coral Park) had such a good time visiting the University of Illinois this weekend that he canceled his scheduled trip to Nebraska that was slated for Sunday and Mondy.

"I'll I can say is that I had a great time," Jenkins said on his way home from Champaign. "To go to Nebraska [on Sunday] wouldn't be right. It's just too much for four days and it wouldn't be fair."

The four-star inside linebacker prospect was blown away by everything about the Fighting Illini and they now find themselves in major contention for his services.
