Liberty guard Jonathan Jackson has entered the transfer portal, as first reported by Verbal Commits. He has two seasons of eligibility remaining as he can utilize an extra COVID year.
The 6’4″, 180 pound Jackson, originally from Dallas, Texas, has spent the past three seasons at Liberty. He entered the transfer portal a year ago and after a short stint in the portal elected to return to the Flames for this past season.
In 2022-23, Jackson played in 27 games while averaging 3.6 minutes per game. He shot 40.0% from three on his 30 attempted three-pointers. For his career, Jackson has played in 63 games while averaging 1.8 points and 0.4 rebounds while shooting 35.9% from three.
“Thank you Flames Nation for the support these past three years,” Jackson said in a statement posted to his social media accounts. “I want to thank my teammates for the lifelong relationships I have built. Thank you to my parents and those close to me for your unwavering love and support. Thank you to the academic staff for allowing me to succeed and graduate this May. With all this being said, I have decided to begin a new chapter in my life. I will be entering the transfer portal with two years of eligibility remaining.”
Jackson joins forward Blake Preston as the first two entrants into the portal from Liberty’s roster. With their departures, Liberty currently has two scholarships available for the 2023-24 season. The Flames have previously signed Curtis Blair and Kai Yu who will join the team this summer.
