Star Jackson to Georgia State

Alabama Spring Game
As I reported last month, Star Jackson was “expected” to transfer from the University of Alabama. As we begin the month of June, I can now confirm what was anticipated…Star Jackson is no longer a member of the Alabama football program.

Jackson is planning to transfer to Georgia State (as noted in the prior article) and has been in Atlanta looking for an apartment. The former ‘Bama quarterback plans to enroll at GSU this summer and begin playing for the Georgia State Panthers this season.

Jackson will have three years of eligibility remaining and hopes to compete for the starting job at quarterback.

As a point of emphasis, Jackson has yet to officially enroll at Georgia State, which means he could change his mind at the last moment and decide to test the waters elsewhere. However, the percentage is extremely high that Jackson will follow through on his plans, and arrive at the GSU campus this summer.

In respect to the Georgia State football team, the 2010 season will mark the first year for the program. The Panthers will be led by former Alabama Crimson Tide head coach, Bill Curry.

Alabama and Georgia State are scheduled to tangle at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Nov. 20, so I think I speak for everyone when I say it would be more than interesting to see Star Jackson under center facing his old team/school.

How many quarterbacks get a national championship ring…and then go against the national champs the very next season? I don’t have the answer, but I do know Star Jackson has his ring…and a fresh start.
