In December, it was announced that Daniel Jenkins would be transferring out of the Arizona football program after finishing second among Wildcat running backs in rushing yards last season. In January, the running back took to Twitter to announce that he would be transferring to Washington State to continue his collegiate playing career.
Four months later?
Lt. Frank Drebin, take it away…
Friday night, UA head coach Rich Rodriguez announced that Jenkins had decided to leave Wazzu and transfer back to the Wildcats. No reason was given for Jenkins’ decision to transfer back into the program from which he had left just five months ago.
Jenkins participated in spring practice at WSU and would’ve been eligible to play for the Cougars in 2013 as he had graduated from UA in December. Now, he will be eligible to play for the Wildcats this season as a graduate transfer.
In 2012, Jenkins was third on the team in rushing behind the nation’s leading rusher Ka’Deem Carey (1,929 yards) and quarterback Matt Scott (506) with a career-high 293 yards. As a four-star member of UA’s 2009 recruiting class, Jenkins was rated as the No. 12 all-purpose back in the country by Rivals.com.
