Redshirt freshman Chris Jenkins has left the Colorado men's basketball program, head coach Tad Boyle announced in a release Monday. The school did not give a reason for Jenkins' departure.
Jenkins -- a 6-7, 185-pound guard/forward from Detroit, Mich., -- sat out last season after being redshirted. He has four years of eligibility remaining.
Jenkins was a member of the Athletes In Action basketball team that traveled to Lithuania over the summer. He played in four of five games and averaged 7.8 points, 3.3 rebounds and 17.8 minutes.
The Buffs open the 2013-14 season Friday against No. 25 Baylor at the American Airlines Center in Dallas. Tipoff is 8 p.m. The game will be televised on Root Sports.
