Former Florida Gator CB Janoris Jenkins is looking to transfer to Division II school North Alabama pending NCAA approval. Jenkins started all 3 years at Florida and would have started his senior year there if he had not been kicked off of the team.
Jenkins was dismissed from Florida earlier this year after being arrested twice in 3 months on drug related charges. The NFL supplemental draft had been rumored to be a part of Jenkins future, but instead it looks as if he wants to return to school and try to salvage his draft stock.
Jenkins career while playing for Florida wasn’t bad with 8 career interceptions and he was also named 1st team All SEC last year. Jenkins missed all of Florida’s spring training due to shoulder surgery and playing another season is probably what he needs in order to show scouts that he has fully recovered from the surgery and that he has moved on from his legal issues.
This is probably one of the final chances that he Jenkins has to clean up his image. Hopefully Janoris can stay away from the drugs and get his football career back on track.
