Report: Miami DL Jenkins transferring to UConn

Randy Edsall said his staff would explore the possibility of adding players to its  roster and according to a report by Peter Ariz, owner of the site which follows University of Miami recruiting, former Miami defensive tackle Courtel Jenkins is transferring to UConn.

The 311-pound native of Jersey City, N.J., Jenkins played in 34 games for the Hurricanes over the last three seasons. He had 54 tackles, 7 1/2 tackles for loss and 2 1/2 sacks. He posted a career-high six tackles in a 2015 game against Clemson.

His time at Miami came to an end when he was dismissed from the team a couple of months ago for an unspecified violation of team rules.

Among his visits during the recruiting process was one to Maryland for the spring game when Edsall was the Terrapins' head coach.

Jenkins played as a true freshman in 2014 so I would have to think he will not be immediately eligible to play during the 2017 season at UConn but will one year of eligibility remaining.

The NFL Draft Scout database run by CBS Sports lists Jenkins as the No. 59 rated defensive tackle prospect in the 2018 draft.
