Josh Jackson Lands At Maryland

Font Size:

A superstar ACC quarterback has decided to continue his college career at a former ACC school.

Former Virginia Tech quarterback Josh Jackson announced his decision to transfer to Maryland on Monday night, giving new Terps’ head coach Mike Locksley a formidable weapon as he looks to rebuild the football program.

A graduate transfer Jackson will have two years of eligibility left and be eligible to play right away. (RELATED: 2018 SEC Championship Review: The Stuff Of Legends)

The redshirt junior passed for 3,000 yards 20 touchdowns and rushed for 324 and six touchdowns during his only full year as a starter in 2017. However, Jackson’s 2018 season was derailed after a promising start, when he was injured in the Hokie’s stunning loss to Old Dominion in week three. (RELATED: College Football Star Quits Sport To Go Into Ministry)

This is certainly a big get for Locksley, who’s off to a nice start in College Park. Hopefully, he’s a better play caller than he showed the last time he coached a game.
