Once this kid had it going he appeared unstoppable. Jenkins was a dynamic score-first point guard that played with an extreme explosive on the attack, particularly with his left hand which he loved to penetrate with. Glides gracefully to the basket when taking the baseline. Jenkins also handled pressure from the defense well, he showed a pure ability to create separation and freeze defenders dead in their tracks with in-and-out hesitation dribbles. Anytime Josiah made his way into the paint he was a threat to score with either hand, Jenkins may be a right-handed player but he picked up the bulk of shot attempts from the left side of the floor. The most impressive part of his game is the way he takes and makes a lot of driving off-balance shots due to his remarkable body control and an amazing ability to change his shot in mid-air. Also, phenomenal at initiating and finishing through all sorts of body contact, showing great focus and concentration on the backboard on each and every drive. Josiah Jenkins plays this game with a refuse to lose mentality, amazing effort, and electrifying energy.
