Jackson was a fifth round draft choice by the Texas Rangers last weekend and will begin his professional career as a member of the short season Spokane Indians in the Northwest League when their season begins on Friday.

Jackson batted .386 with 88 hits, 19 doubles, 13 homers, 66 runs scored and 67 RBI as a junior in his final season with the Bulldogs. He led the SoCon in on-base percentage (.495) and was second in runs and RBI. He finished with 150 total bases and a slugging percentage of .658.

In all he finished in the top 10 in the conference and the top 50 in the nation in 10 statistical categories. In four games at the SoCon tournament, Jackson went 10-for-13, scored eight runs and drove in five and as the Bulldogs won their first three contests to reach the championship game.
