Starting DB at Michigan State becomes 13th player to hit transfer portal in last month
The march to the transfer portal in East Lansing continues.
On Thursday, MLive.com reported that starting cornerback Chris Jackson has entered his name in the NCAA transfer portal. He becomes the 13th player from Michigan State to enter the portal since Nov. 16.
Jackson started the season as a starter at the cornerback position but was no longer a member of the team when the year came to a close. Head coach Mel Tucker didn’t provide many details on the absence, but it appears Jackson will be searching for a new place to play college football.
In four games, Jackson was responsible for 9 tackles, 2 for loss and a pass break-up.
“Chris hasn’t been with the team and I really don’t anticipate him being back with the team this season,” Tucker said during a press conference earlier in the year. “We’ll assess everything with Chris after the season when we’re all wrapped up.”
Jackson started in the first two games of the season, but then missed the next two games due to injury. He was able to participate in two more contests before he was no longer with the team.
Jackson is a redshirt sophomore and will have three years of eligibility remaining at his next destination.
