MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two of the Memphis Tigers' top impact players from the 2022 NCAA Football season announced they will be leaving the team and entering the transfer portal for 2023, just two days after a victory at the First Responder Bowl in Dallas.
"I want to thank God for putting me in this position, but with me discussing with my family, I will be entering my name in the Transfer Portal with two years of eligibility left," Jackson said in a Tweet Thursday.
Jackson was one of the standouts on the Tigers defensive front, posting 41 total tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and one sack in 2022, coming in the Tigers First Responder Bowl victory against Utah State on Tuesday.
The 6'6" tall, 340 lbs. redshirt sophomore was a three-star recruit out of Haynesville, Louisiana, in 2020.
Prieskorn was one of the true impact players on a dynamic Tigers offense in 2022, recording 48 catches for 602 total yards and seven touchdowns, including one in the First Responder Bowl.
"Tiger fans, no one could have prepared me for the impact that Memphis as a whole would have on me," Prieskorn said in a Tweet. You gave me a home away from home and I owe you my deepest gratitude."
Wide reciever Javon Ivory also announced he's entering the Transfer Portal Thursday. The redshirt junior was one of the best pass catchers on the team, posting 46 catches for 586 yards and two touchdowns, including a 68-yard score against Tulsa on Nov. 10.
