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.

Today one of college football’s biggest rivalry games will be shown to DISH customers in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth and seven other regions in Texas. The reason? Television contract disputes between Tegna and DISH.
Tegna is the largest independent owner of NBC and CBS affiliates in the country, including NBC affiliates in Denver, Washington D.C., Atlanta and Phoenix. The company is in a continued dispute with DISH related to fee disputes, per Variety.
“Our position has been simple: The same fundamental terms that allowed us to reach deals with distributors nationwide should serve as the basis for our deal with Dish,” a statement from Tegna said. “Rather than accepting that fair, market-based approach, Dish has refused to reach an agreement and once again is preventing its customers from accessing valued channels, even as customers continue to pay for that content.”
Now the dispute carries a concern for some fans wanting to watch Oklahoma and Texas this afternoon.
This should go over well, although there may be some Texas fans who may not want to witness what happens to the Longhorns anyway.
Heading into what could be his final game as head coach of the Maryland Terrapins, Randy Edsall will reportedly go with Perry Hills as his starting quarterback.
Hills, a junior, got the start for the first two games of the season but the leash was short. Edsall made a change to Caleb Rowe following a loss at home to Bowling Green. Hills has completed 52.9 percent of his passes for 306 yards and four touchdowns with two interceptions. Rowe has been a disaster at the position, completing just 44.0 percent of his attempts for 428 yards, four touchdowns and an astounding 12 interceptions in five games. Daxx Garman has struggled as well with a completion percentage of just 33.0.
