NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)
Jenkins announced what he called a very difficult decision for his family and himself in a statement Monday released by Vanderbilt. The Hendersonville, Tenn., native was an All-SEC first-team pick in 2011 and 2012 and tied the SEC single-season record with 134 3-pointers as a junior.
Coach Kevin Stallings says he's very happy for Jenkins and wishes him a long professional career. Stallings also loses five seniors off the Southeastern Conference tournament champs.
Jenkins ranks 10th on Vanderbilt's all-time list with 1,660 points, second all-time with 306 career 3s. The guard says he plans to finish his degree at Vanderbilt.
