Alabama ‘Star’ QB
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Star Jackson’s high school coach says the Alabama quarterback is considering a transfer.
Lake Worth (Fla.) coach Errick Lowe told The Tuscaloosa News and the Press-Register in Mobile that Jackson is weighing his options. Reached recently by The Associated Press, Lowe would only confirm that Jackson met with Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban last week.
Jackson played in five games last year, but AJ McCarron overtook him on the depth chart during the season.
Highly regarded signee Phillip Sims enrolled early and went through spring practice.
Lowe says fledgling program Georgia State is among Jackson’s options. Former Lake Worth assistant Anthony Midget is the secondary coach for Georgia State, a team that visits Alabama on Nov. 20.
