Former Florida CB Janoris Jenkins Headed to Divison II School


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.



  1. From everything I know about North Alabama (UNA), those guys are not about rehabilitating lives, it is strictly about football. Every year, UNA recruits more transfer players than high school players. To me, that says that winning surpasses education in levels of importance because they are not giving high school talent from the state of Alabama or from the surrounding areas of Florence, Ala. a chance to earn a degree as well as play football. This is a joke and a slap in the face of Division II football. Terry Bowden should be ashamed of himself.
