Washington Husky tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins is leaving school a year early.  Seferian-Jenkins told the Seattle Times after Friday night’s win in the Fight Hunger Bowl that he’ll skip his senior season and declare himself eligible for the NFL Draft. He leaves as Washington’s all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown catches by a tight end.
