There seems to be plenty of uncertainty about Josh Jackson’s status with the Virginia Tech football program. The starting quarterback’s status first came in question when reports surfaced about an academic issue. Jackson’s father added to the suspicion with a questionable comment about Jackson’s status with the team.
“As of right now, Josh is still a member of the Virginia Tech football team,” Jackson’s father, Fred, told Mike Barber of the Richmond Times-Dispatch. “We’ll know more in two days. It’s too early to talk about this.”
According to Matt Fortuna of The Athletic, Jackson is facing an academic issue but that has not stopped him from participating in the Hokies’ workout program this offseason.
That would be a bit disappointing for the Hokies, who are looking to improve on last season’s nine-win campaign.
During the 2018 season, which was Jackson’s freshman year, the signal-caller threw for 2,743 yards with 19 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
