TCU cornerback David Jenkins dismissed from team


    A TCU football player has been kicked off the football team and dismissed from classes, head coach Gary Patterson said on Friday, after two warrants were issued for his arrest on suspicion of burglary of a habitation.

    TCU cornerback David Jenkins turned himself into the Tarrant County Sherriff’s Office on Thursday night, according to TCU Police Sgt. Kelly Ham.

    In an email, Patterson said Jenkins, a 2012 LSU transfer who sat out the 2012-2013 season per NCAA transfer rules, was released from the team and dropped from all classes.

    "(I'm) very disappointed in his actions," Patterson said.

    Both Ham and the Tarrant County Sheriff's Department confirmed Jenkins posted bond and was released.
