TCU transfer Jackson wins Cal QB competitors
Aug 24, 2023, 12:49 PM ET BERKELEY, Calif.– TCU transfer Sam Jackson V will open the season as the starting quarterback for California.Coach Justin Wilcox stated Thursday that Jackson won the training school competitors with Ben Finley and Fernando Mendoza and will begin the season opener for the Golden Bears at North Texas on Sept. 2.”Sam started to separate himself recently,” Wilcox stated.”He is a dynamic athlete who can be successful both in the death game and by making defenses account for his impressive running capability. When your quarterback does both of those things well, it can be challenging for the defense. I’m delighted to see what he finishes with this opportunity. “Editor’s Picks Jackson left TCU in January after getting just a handful of snaps to move to Cal, where he got substantial practice time in spring football and summer training camp.He played in 7 games for the Horned Frogs.
