“Royce is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Cass Tech High School,” said John Myers, Director of Strategic Communications, Marketing and Outreach, U.S. Army Accessions Command. “Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and Royce possesses similar mental, emotional and physical strengths to Army Strong Soldiers. We are proud to honor all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and congratulate each of them on their selection.”

The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder bolsters an impressive roster for the U.S. Army All-American contest. Jenkins-Stone is currently rated as the #3 middle linebacker in the country by, making him a 4-star prospect.

Jenkins-Stone has already made a commitment to sign with Michigan on National Letter of Intent Day.

Scout Eval: "Has solid size and good speed and athleticism. An aggressive player who is best when in attack mode and shooting gaps. Good ability in coverage, as he has good ball skills and length. Improved as a junior in reading plays, but can still have a tendency to over run some plays. Often times, he is beating blocks with speed and sheer aggressiveness, so he will have to learn to take on and shed blockers at the college level." - Allen Trieu
