Per  a tweet from JucoReport.com, Virginia Tech redshirt freshman guard Tyrie Jackson is transferring out of the Hokie program.

Jackson did not corroborate the report on his own Twitter feed, where his profile (as of this writing) still identifies him as “Virginia Tech MBB #1.” But it’s worth noting that Jackson doesn’t tweet very often (just 23 tweets, none since Dec. 6 2017).

Jackson, from Tift County H.S. in Tifton, GA, played in 28 games in 2017-18, after redshirting in 2016-17.  He averaged 3.0 points per game in 7.2 minutes per game, with highs of nine points twice (Detroit Mercy, The Citadel) and 21 minutes (Detroit Mercy).

  1. Wow. My first impression on his leaving is disappointment. I thought he showed real promise and I expected him to get a lot more playing time next year. Good luck, young man. I hope it works out well for you.

  2. I’m sad to see him go. He is a truly outstanding young man, and more than capable enough to play in the ACC. Perhaps his role on the team has not taken the path he had hoped, but I trust Buzz to have an honest and respectful conversation with Pig. And Pig, as an intelligent and upright individual, will make the best decision based on that discussion. It was clear to me the other players liked him a lot, and respected his ability and work ethic. The energy and enthusiasm he brought to the team, whether during practice or a game, was infectious. I wish him every success… he certainly deserves it.

  3. Right decision on all parts. I strongly believed he was simply not an ACC caliber player, which is no knock on him….and I am sure the future playing time talk happened w Buzz and Buzz saw the same. Best of luck young man. Hopefully we have someone in mind to fill his roster spot

    1. Well, I strongly believe you are wrong. He’s a thick bodied athlete with a great stroke and off the charts athletic ability. Showed tremendous ‘want to’ on D. Buzz mentioned that he was a guy who was capable of having big scoring nights.

    1. “He will be missed.”

      If nothing more than for his role as an incredible team supporter. He was a source of energy and camaraderie from the sideline and was fun to watch, even though he didn’t play much.

      Best of luck to him @ NW Florida State!
