Brandon Jenkins to forgo possible red-shirt senior season at Florida State, enter NFL draft

Sam Sharpe-US PRESSWIRE

Jenkins had an excellent career at Florida State.

Brandon Jenkins, the star Florida State defensive end who returned for his senior season but was lost to a foot injury in early September, will not return for his senior season, he announced Monday following Florida State's practice.

Jenkins was an All-American in 2010 and had a strong season in 2011. He returned for his 2012 senior year, hoping to elevate his draft stock even more. Unfortunately, that did not happen. Jenkins said he came to the decision two weeks ago.

Earlier Monday, Jimbo Fisher said that Jenkins had the option to return in 2013 as a red-shirt senior, but that he was unsure what Jenkins would do. It is unknown whether Jenkins will be ready for the NFL combine, though he does have a lot of good tape to show NFL teams.
