It's not easy to get playing time when the guy ahead of you leads the nation in rushing.
Jenkins graduated last week with a degree in public management and policy. NCAA rules allow him to join any program in the country and play right away, provided the school offers a graduate program unavailable at Arizona.
Starter Ka'Deem Carey led the nation with 1,929 yards and 23 touchdowns and has two years of eligibility remaining, thus assuring that Jenkins was unlikely to see much playing time next season.
Although Jenkins provided some sturdy depth behind Carey, the Wildcats are doing well on the recruiting trail and have three talented backs committed to sign in February. Rising sophomore Jared Baker also returns.
