Lacking depth in the secondary, the Oklahoma recently added a graduate transfer. After earning a degree in management, Austin Jackson ultimately decided to transfer away from the eastern seaboard. Spending the previous two season with the Clemson Tigers, the safety becomes immediately eligible for the upcoming year.
Appearing in four games after redshirting in 2016, Jackson lacks on the field experience at the FBS level. In spite of the fact, the program seems genuinely interested in the abilities of the newly acquired transfer. Listed at 6’1″ and 215-pounds, Jackson becomes one of the bigger safeties on the roster.
Lincoln Riley raved about the potential of Jackson saying “he’s got some great experience and certainly looks the part coming in here,” in a statement according to News OK. However, the two have yet to connect consistently. With the season around the corner, that will likely change now that Jackson is a member of the team.
