USC lost scholarships, vacated wins and were banned from bowl game for two years by the NCAA for a lack of institutional control.
It wasn’t a problem for Jackson.
The junior defensive end had decided he would stay at USC and finish out his two years of eligibility.
That’s until he received a call from new Tennessee coach Derek Dooley.
He asked Jackson to transfer to UT, which he agreed to do on Monday. The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Jackson will be eligible to play this season.
