Former Michigan State wide receiver, Trishton Jackson, is transferring to Syracuse.
Jackson’s announcement came just three days after he announced he would be leaving Michigan State’s football program.
Jackson, who was a four-star recruit, is the eighth player from the highly-touted 2016 recruiting class who will no longer be on the roster.
The former West Bloomfield High School star expected to have a huge imapact on the Spartans’ 2017 season after a big spring game, but that never came to fruition. Jackson had just 12 catches for 143 yards this season.
Freshman Cody White took over Jackson’s duties as the No. 3 receiver after a breakout season. This is probably a big reason why Jackson has decided to leave the Spartans.
The Spartans also have a trio of offensive linemen leaving the program in Nick Padla, Jeremy Schram and Casey Schreiner.
Jackson will have to sit out this season, but will have two years of eligibility remaining with Syracuse afterward.
Jackson’s role likely would have increased with Rison gone. I understand that these players want to start, I do, but what I honestly don’t understand is all of this early attrition for a program that is set for a strong 2018 season and beyond. it’s supposed to be team first, right?
