NEWSLINE: Plans change for incoming Coug RB?
After making his choice to join Washington State back in January, Jenkins had said he looked forward to a fresh start on the Palouse.
"I talked with (Mike Leach and Jim Mastro) this past weekend while I was on a visit there," said Jenkins. "We talked about how they want to utilize me and we were on the same page. I'll be able to contribute in a variety of ways.
"And I'll finally get that chance to be a featured back."
Jenkins has played in 32 games over three seasons at Arizona. He has 495 career rushing yards on 106 career carries.
Coming out of spring, Teondray Caldwell was the Cougs' top running back performer. But Theron West and Marcus Mason saw more reps with the starting unit than most pundits had expected heading into the spring session. Caldwell had a run-in with the law in late April, with WSU saying the matter would be handled internally.
