UW’s Austin Seferian-Jenkins will rejoin team to open fall camp

Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who pleaded guilty to drunken driving earlier this month, will open fall camp with the team, UW coach Steve Sarkisian confirmed.

Sarkisian reiterated that any team-imposed discipline on Seferian-Jenkins will be handled “internally.”

After his March arrest, Seferian-Jenkins, an All-American candidate, was suspended from team activities during spring practices.

Seferian-Jenkins “has been tremendous throughout this entire process,” Sarkisian said Friday at Pac-12 media day. “He’s handled himself like I knew he would. He’s a great kid who made a mistake. It’s unfortunate. He feels horrible about it. I think it’s been a great learning lesson for all our guys on our roster. …

“I can tell you today that everything he’s done up to this point has been above and beyond what we’ve asked of him. The punitive side of it has been finalized from a legal standpoint, and now my job is to continue to develop a young man who I treat like a son.”
