Analysis: Darius Jennings is a highly sought after dual-threat QB. He currently holds fifteen Division 1 offers. Most of these schools are looking at this talented prospect to play either defensive back or running back. In an interview with Scout.com he stated “I would prefer to play offense in college, I like the feel when the ball is in my hands.” Jennings is a talented quarterback who racks up enormous amounts of yardage with his running abilities. He has experience playing wide receiver, corner back, running back and kick returner. Jennings has excellent vision. He uses his speed and elusiveness to find creases in the defense.  His combination of vision, speed and elusiveness makes it difficult for defenses to locate and tackle him. Jennings is going to need to work on his passing skills to be a true dual-threat quarterback at the college level.  Jenning's talents will allow him to be a playmaker at either quarterback or at another position on the football field.
