Two years into his college career, Jenkins will likely have to sit on the year when he transfers. He will then have two years to play at whichever new program he lands at.
Expect him to receive plenty of attention. Jenkins can really score it.
This season, he shot over 45-percent from the floor and three-point range, knocking down 3.5 three-pointers per game. The Jackrabbits reached the NIT, where they fell to Texas, now a finalist in the tournament, 79-73.
