Contrary to popular belief, Trezelle Jenkins’ nickname during his University of Michigan football days was not “house cat.”
“Tree” was a more fitting nickname for the mountain of a man, who during his playing days as an offensive tackle stood 6-foot-8 and about 320 pounds.
Jenkins was featured guest Thursday (Jan. 27, 2022) on the VanDyk Mortgage Power Hour along with co-hosts Scott DeCamp and Mike Taylor at North Grove Brewers in Montague.
Jenkins played at U-M from 1991 to 1994. He was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the first round (31st overall) of the 1995 NFL draft. Jenkins played for the Chiefs 1995-97.
These days, he is a plant general manager at Howmet in Whitehall.
Jenkins, DeCamp and Taylor discuss Jenkins’ upbringing in Chicago, a lot about his time at U-M and life after football.
