In September of 2015 Eric Jenkins signed with Nike and the Oregon Project after 2 years at the University of Oregon under Coach Andy Powell. While at Oregon Jenkins helped lead the Ducks to an Indoor NCAA Title and 2 Outdoor NCAA Titles. At the 2015 Indoor Championships he won both the 3K and 5K titles. In the Summer of 2015, Jenkins ran 13:07 to become the youngest American to ever run that fast. In 2015 he also set PR's in the 3K 7:41.79 and the 1500 3:38.98. Eric will be looking to follow in the footsteps of Oregon Project teammates Rupp and Centrowitz who have made the jump from the University of Oregon to the World stage.
