GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida cornerback Janoris Jenkins has decided to return for his senior season.
Jenkins, a three-year starter projected to be a first-round draft pick, has eight career interceptions. He had three this past season, and was a first-team, All-SEC selection by The Associated Press. He missed the Outback Bowl following shoulder surgery.
Jenkins says he's looking forward to working toward his degree, completing his rehab and getting back on the field with his team.
New coach Will Muschamp commends Jenkins for making a "mature decision," saying it would have been "real easy for Janoris to make an emotional choice and leave early." Muschamp adds that the choice will be beneficial "in the long term."
