Of his own volition, Trishton Jackson has seen his time at Syracuse come to an end.
On his personal Twitter account, Jackson announced that, after “carefully taking everything into consideration, I would like to announce my decision to forego my senior year and declare for the 2020 NFL Draft.” The wide receiver added that “[t]his decision was not easy by any means.”
A redshirt junior, Jackson had one season of eligibility he could’ve used.
“We appreciate everything Trishton did for our program during his time at Syracuse University,” head coach Dino Babers said in a statement. “We wish him the best as he pursues his dream of playing professionally.”
