Texas LB Tevin Jackson out for season with torn ACL

The junior sustained the injury on Saturday against Kansas.

The Texas Longhorns linebacker corps has suffered another season-ending injury, as the school announced on Monday evening that junior linebacker Tevin Jackson tore his ACL on Saturday against the Kansas Jayhawks.

It was a disappointing season in a disappointing career for the former high four-star prospect who was ranked by Rivals as the No. 5 player in the state. Jackson's enrollment at Texas was delayed a season because of academic issues and he always seemed behind the curve in his development.

As a freshman, he played sparingly on special teams and did the same as a sophomore until he started the final two games and showed some aptitude as a blitzer. Unfortunately, that didn't translate into playing time this season, as he was noticeably absent on special teams and rarely saw game action until late against Kansas, when he was part of a back-up unit that didn't exactly impress.

Jackson finished the season with three tackles and appeared in only six games and may have to redshirt next season if his recovery doesn't allow him to play throughout the early part of the 2014 season.
