Good News: Auburn Tigers Confirm The Signing Another Top Super Star Just After Signing Sam Jackson

After just one season at Cal, quarterback Sam Jackson V has made a transfer move to Auburn, as announced by the Tigers’ social media site. While he played as a quarterback at Cal, it’s expected that Jackson will transition to a different position, likely wide receiver, when he joins Auburn.

Interestingly, Jackson faced Auburn in the recent season, and the upcoming schedule indicates that Auburn will host Cal in the second game of the next season on September 7. In his previous encounter with Auburn, Jackson came into the game, replacing starting quarterback Ben Finley, and demonstrated productivity despite the Bears suffering a 14-10 defeat. Jackson completed 14 of 27 passes for 129 yards, recording no touchdowns and two interceptions.


Having played various positions at Naperville Central High School near Chicago, Jackson had previously switched from quarterback to receiver due to the presence of current Auburn quarterback Payton Thorne during his high school years. The move to Auburn will see Jackson reuniting with Thorne, potentially as a passing combination. As of now, it seems that Thorne will continue as Auburn’s quarterback in the upcoming season.

In his stint at Cal, Jackson began the season as the starting quarterback, leading the team to a season-opening win over North Texas. However, he started three games before redshirt freshman Fernando Mendoza took over in the sixth game of the season. Jackson completed 52.6% of his passes for the season, throwing five touchdown passes and two interceptions. He also showcased his speed, running for 59 yards, and was recognized as one of the fastest players on the team.

It’s worth noting that Jackson initially began his college career at TCU, where he played as a quarterback for two seasons, albeit with limited playing time. The move to Auburn presents a new chapter in his collegiate football journey, offering the prospect of a position change and a potential reunion with a former high school teammate.
