Keonte Jenkins, who was a standout for Horizon Christian in Fort Wayne, graduating in 2015, was named a National Junior College Association of American All-American.

Already named his conference's Most Valuable Player this offseason, Jenkins averaged 22 points and shot 44.3 percent from the field during his freshman season at Central Lakes College in Minnesota. Central Lakes is part of the NJCAA's Division III, where Jenkins was named to the All-American Second Team. His free throw percentage of 86.9 percent was fifth in the nation for NJCAA D3 players.

South Carolina, Kansas State and Oklahoma State have shown interest in Jenkins already according to his high school coach at Horizon, Anthony Beasley. Jenkins signed with NCAA Division I Delaware State out of high school before redshirting his first year and ultimately transferring to Central Lakes.
