Colonial Preseason Player of the Year: Charles Jenkins

National Hoops Report Colonial Preseason Player of the Year
Charles Jenkins, SG, Junior, Hofstra

The CAA is quickly becoming a league where the country looks for the best mid-major guards. This year, keep an eye on Jenkins.

All Jenkins did was score nearly 20 points a game, grab 4.8 rebounds, hand out 4.3 assists a game and collect 1.4 steals a game. He’s also one of the best assist to turnover guys back in the league this season. The ironman is the top returning scorer in the CAA and has Hofstra on the top half of a very competitive league that sent five teams to the postseason last year.

Jenkins was a non-factor on the recruiting scene as a prep star despite having a very respectable high school career.

He scored 36 points against New York powerhouse St. Raymond's and saw a rise in his recruitment. However, he laid low on the recruiting radar and took a redshirt year when he enrolled at Hofstra.

You could argue he is the best redshirt player in the country.

  1. Jenkins probably is the favorite, but if Larry Sanders plays the way he is in preseason and he did over the summer at Lebron he will be right there with him.
