Seferian-Jenkins on Mariota: 'He's a Duck. What about him?'Greg Auman, Times Staff WriterWednesday, September 9, 2015 11:13pmAsked if he's kept in touch with Marcus Mariota over the years, Austin Seferian-Jenkins was blunt. "Absolutely not," he said. "He went to Oregon."JAMES BORCHUCK They'll be on opposite sidelines Sunday as the Bucs and Titans meet, but five years ago, there seemed a real chance that Bucs tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota might star together in college at Washington.The two went to Huskies football camps together, but Mariota (who went to high school in Hawaii, but had family in Seattle) ultimately chose Oregon over Washington, with Seferian-Jenkins committing to his hometown Huskies later in the same summer of 2010, before their senior year of high school."He's a Duck. What about him?" Seferian-Jenkins said Wednesday, sitting at the locker next to Bucs rookie QB Jameis Winston. "I remember they beat our (butt) my sophomore year, and my junior year we played a little closer. He's a good dude. I knew him when I was in high school coming up, same recruiting class. We went to U-Dub's football camps together. He's a great guy, a classy individual, but I like who we have at quarterback, so I'm not worried about him."Mariota played well in two college games head-to-head against Seferian-Jenkins -- he threw for four touchdowns in a 52-21 Oregon win in 2012, then threw for 366 yards and three touchdowns in a 45-24 win in 2013, rushing for another 88 yards and another score. Asked if he's kept in touch with Mariota over the years, Seferian-Jenkins was blunt."Absolutely not," he said. "He went to Oregon."
