Nearly a year after leaving LSU and ultimately landing at TCU, David Jenkins will again be in search of a new collegiate home — provided his near-future home doesn’t include bars and stripes, of course.
According to TCU360.com, two warrants were issued recently for the cornerback’s arrest on suspicion of burglary of a habitation. Thursday night, Jenkins turned himself in.
Friday morning, head coach Gary Patterson confirmed to the website that Jenkins has been dismissed from the football program.
‘Very disappointed in his actions,” the coach wrote in an email.
Jenkins left LSU in mid-June last year for unknown reasons. He sat out the 2012 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules, but was in line for a starting job exiting spring as he was listed No. 2 on the depth chart.
As a four-star recruit in LSU’s 2011 class, Jenkins was rated as the No. 21 cornerback in the country coming out of high school in Carrollton, Tex. He would’ve been a redshirt sophomore in 2013.
