Former Virginia Tech quarterback Josh Jackson announces he’s transferring to Maryland

Josh Jackson, the former starting quarterback for the Virginia Tech Hokies, is transferring to Maryland. Jackson, if he graduates from Virginia Tech this spring as expected, would be eligible to suit up immediately for the Terps next fall with at least two years of eligibility remaining.

Jackson completed 59.6 percent of his passes and tallied 26 total touchdowns - along with six interceptions - as a redshirt freshman for Virginia Tech in 2017. He broke his fibula last September and announced his plans to leave Blacksburg after the season. Jackson announced his intentions to transfer last month.

Dodgers Legend, Don Newcombe, Passes Away at the Age of 92
Newcombe spent his first two seasons with the team before missing the next two to serve in the military during the Korean War. Newcombe was a member of Brooklyn's lone World Series championship in 1955.

Maryland's passing game struggled most of last season, particularly against top defenses. The school hired Alabama offensive coordinator Mike Locksley as its next head coach in early December. In 2017, both Tyrrell Pigrome and Kasim Hill tore ACLs, and past year, Hill tore his other ACL after nine games.

Hill, whose recovery probably will keep him out for the 2019 season, recently entered his name in the NCAA's transfer portal, but he said on Twitter that he has not made a decision as to whether he will stay. Legendre, a four-star recruit, signed with Maryland over Florida State on national signing day.
