Star Jackson at Starting QB? Yes.. Possibly Against Alabama!

Sources say that Star Jackson is considering transferring from Alabama to play elsewhere... and that elsewhere could be one of Alabama's opponents next year, Georgia State.  Georgia State is coached by none other than former Alabama head coach Bill Curry.  The connection to Star Jackson is through an assistant coach who was Star Jackson's former high school coach, Errick Lowe of Lake Worth (FL).

The move could be a win-win situation for all parties involved.  First of all, Star Jackson would not lose eligibility in tranferring to Georgia State because it is not a  Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) team.  That means that next year, if Star transfers and wins the GSU starting QB spot, he could be facing some familiar foes in the  Alabama defense when GSU takes on the Tide on Nov. 20.  

In all, he would have 3 years left to play football on the collegiate level and possibly still get noticed by the NFL someday.  For Georgia State, Bill Curry will get a top level QB to help in his inaugural year of football.  Alabama also would benefit from opening up a scholarship position for another top recruit to be signed. 

 As of today, Star Jackson has not transferred, but the deadline for it at GSU is June 1st.   Jackson's departure would leave the Crimson Tide with 3 scholarship quarterbacks  in Greg McElroy,  A. J. McCarron, and the 5 star true freshman Phillip Sims.
