Forget about the possibility of transferring. Buffalo quarterback Tyree Jackson is taking his game to the next level. Jackson officially declared himself for the NFL Draft with a statement share don his Instagram account.
“After much prayer and talks with my family, it is my decision to forgo my senior season and declare for the 2019 NFL Draft,” Jackson said in a statement released on his Instagram account Sunday morning. “Since I was five years old, it has always been a lifelong dream of mine to play in the NFL. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I plan on embracing the challenge.”
Jackson led the MAC with 3,131 yards and 28 touchdowns while averaging a conference-leading 223.6 yards per game. He also rushed for seven touchdowns and 161 yards. He closed out his career on a two-game losing streak with losses to Troy in the bowl game and Northern Illinois in the MAC Championship Game before that, but Jackson was a major reason why Buffalo put together a 10-2 regular season with a chance to play in the MAC championship game.
