Coach Corbin Quote - Jackson follows a long line of Vanderbilt left-handed pitchers who have size, arm strength and the ability to throw a quality breaking pitch. He will need a little time to harness and develop his pitches, but his abilities will enable him to compete relatively soon. It will be enjoyable to watch him grow.

Stranded two inherited runners and worked 1.1 innings of relief against Alabama 5/20... Inherited the bases loaded and stranded them loaded, recording two outs against Middle Tennessee 5/16...
