Jackson, a defensive lineman, was blocked from transferring to another SEC school as well as others on the Tigers’ upcoming schedule. Instead of enrolling at another four-year college, Jackson will bide his time at Blinn Community College in Texas. He would presumably be free to enroll anywhere next June and would have three years of eligibility remaining. “I would like to thank the former/current Auburn coaches for giving me the opportunity to play football at the next level,” Jackson wrote. “I had a great experience at Auburn. There are no hard feelings between myself and the coaches. I felt I needed a new start. I’ll never forget the memories, great friends, teammates and counselors I’ve made along the way. I’ll be rooting for my brothers Marlon Davidson and Derrick Brown.

I deserve to talk to them. It’s a Big Ten school. It’s not anywhere in the SEC.” The 6-2, 305-pound Jackson is a product of Ellenwood (Ga.) Center Grove High School. He was ranked as the nation’s No. 50 prospect overall, No. 7 defensive tackle and No. 5 overall prospect in Georgia for 2016, according to the 247Sports Composite. But he redshirted for Auburn during the 2016 season. Source Link
