Jackson went 11-5 in his career as a starter at Virginia Tech before breaking his foot against Old Dominion this past September. He completed 59.9% of his passes for 3,566 yards in his career, with 25 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He also ran for 385 yards and seven touchdowns.
Jackson’s departure leaves Ryan Willis (r-Sr.), Hendon Hooker (r-So.) and Quincy Patterson (r-Fr.) as the three quarterbacks in the program.
