As a true freshman in 2011, Seferian-Jenkins started 10 of 13 games and had 41 receptions for 538 yards and six touchdowns. He also played basketball as a freshman.[2] In his sophomore season, Seferian-Jenkins recorded 69 receptions for 852 yards and 7 touchdowns.[3] He finished third in the Mackey Award voting.[4] Upon completing his sophomore season, Seferian-Jenkins had already set Washington records for receptions (110), receiving yards (1,390) and touchdowns (13) for the tight end position.[5] On August 12, 2013, Seferian-Jenkins suffered a broken pinkie during practice.[6] Coach Steve Sarkisian announced the next day that Seferian-Jenkins will have to undergo surgery to repair the broken pinkie.[6] Following Washington's win in the 2013 Fight Hunger Bowl Seferian-Jenkins announced he would leave school early and enter the 2014 NFL Draft.[7]
