Austin Seferian-Jenkins on DUI: 'I will take full responsibility'

William Mancebo

The Washington tight end released a statement through the school, taking full responsibility for his DUI arrest over the weekend.

Washington Huskies tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins released a statement through the university following his arrest for DUI:

Coach Sarkisian holds our team to high standards on and off the field, and I fell short of those standards this weekend. I apologize for letting down my family, my team and the entire University of Washington community. I will take full responsibility for my actions and work to use this as a learning experience.

Seferian-Jenkins reportedly veered off the road while driving drunk, and ended up hitting his head on the windshield after running into a small tree. He suffered some minor cuts and bruises, but managed to avoid any major injuries.

Disciplinary action for Seferian-Jenkins is stil forthcoming. It's possible that he could miss time at the beginning of the 2013 season for the Huskies. The rising junior emerged as one of the best tight ends in college football in 2012, bringing in 69 catches for 852 yards and seven touchdowns.

The Huskies open the 2013 season at home on Aug. 31, in a high profile showdown against the Boise State Broncos.
