The Louisville defensive front just got a little thinner with less than two week until the season opener.
Jody Demling of Cardinal Authority broke the news on Thursday that sophomore defensive defensive end Jarrett Jackson has decided to enter the transfer portal.
Jackson was a highly regarded recruit in the 2018 class. He chose Louisville over Florida, Florida State, Kentucky, Mississippi State, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia Tech and West Virginia, among others.
The Palm Beach native showed potential as a true freshman with 16 tackles, including three for a loss. Jackson’s two sacks tied for the best on the team and he also forced a fumble in one of Louisville’s two wins.
Jackson wasn’t believed to be getting a lot of first team reps, but losing depth on the defensive line is never a good thing.
The coaching change has now resulted in a total of 15 players entering the transfer portal. Unfortunate, but not surprising. These things happen when you go through a rebuilding process.<
