It’s been known since senior day that Sterling Jenkins would not return to the program in 2019 but it was unknown if he was going to continue his playing career somewhere else. On Saturday night, that answer was given when Jenkins announced he’d be playing his final year of football at Duquesne University.
Coming out of high school, the Pittsburgh native was a four-star composite prospect according to 247Sports. At the time, it was thought Jenkins could be a building block for the Nittany Lions on the offensive line but was also considered a project prospect.
Unfortunately for the Nittany Lions and Jenkins, he didn’t meet those on-field expectations but did become a tremendous scout team member over the last few years. Jenkins did see playing time in 11 games during the 2016 season but saw that number fall to just 1 in 2017 and then failed to appear in a game this past season.
All of us here at BSD wish Sterling the best of luck at Duquesne and with all his future endeavors.
