TAMPA, Fla. -- Georgia junior nose tackle John Jenkins confirmed Friday morning that he will indeed return for his senior season.
"That's it," Jenkins said. "I just wanted to go through the process. You never know until you do it where you stand."
Jenkins told Dawgs247 late in the regular season but hedged on that stance earlier this week in Tampa, saying he would consider the NFL based on his draft grade. Jenkins said he has not yet aware of his grade from the NFL Draft advisory board, but Friday's comments cleared up his plans.
Apparently, so did word from linebacker Jarvis Jones, who told reporters from other media outlets during Wednesday's interview session that Jenkins was certain to be back.
Asked if Jones' statement was accurate, Jenkins said Friday that it was.
"Yeah, he's right. He's right," Jenkins said. "That's my guy. J.J. and I, we're roommates. We're going to try to do it up big next year, man."
So everyone can stop being concerned with Jenkins' NFL decision?
"Yes," he said.
