02/14/19 - (QB) - *Tyree Jackson, rJr, 6-7, 249
Previewing the 2019 NFL Combine: Third Day Sleeper: Tyrone Jackson, Buffalo: A raw talent with all the tools necessary to be a starter at the next level, he has big upside because of his size and arm strength and is the ultimate wild card in this year's draft. Jackson possesses a howitzer and is able to launch 70-yard rockets with a simple flick of the wrist. Plus, showed that he responded well to coaching during his time at the Senior Bowl, he was one of the most improved players as the week wore on. Some scouts view Jackson to have the greatest ceiling of any quarterback in this year's class, if allowed to sit for a few years, he could possibly develop into a starting quarterback. Jackson will be intriguing for NFL teams who have an aging quarterback and are looking to groom a successor. - Ric Serritella, NFLDraftScout.com


01/06/19 - (QB) - *Tyree Jackson, rJr, 6-7, 249
University at Buffalo quarterback Tyree Jackson is forgoing his senior season by declaring himself eligible for the NFL draft. Jackson calls it a "once in a lifetime opportunity" in a posting Sunday on Instagram. He has been contemplating his future since placing his name into the NCAA transfer portal shortly after completing his season with a 42-32 loss to Troy in the Dollar General Bowl. Jackson is a redshirt junior who already has graduated. He says he reached his decision by consulting with his family, and adds he's "really excited about the journey ahead, and I am going to attack it head on." Jackson had a career-high 3,131 yards passing for 28 touchdowns, one short of matching the school's single-season record, and 12 interceptions this season. He also scored seven touchdowns rushing. Overall, Jackson has completed 56 percent of his passes for 6,999 yards with 49 touchdowns and 24 interceptions in 32 career games. Buffalo also stands losing its top two receivers. Anthony Johnson is graduating, and K.J. Osborn is exploring the possibility of transferring. - AP College Football


01/02/19 - (QB) - *Tyree Jackson, rJr, 6-7, 249
University at Buffalo quarterback Tyree Jackson has taken the first step in exploring the possibility of transferring to another school for his senior season. Coach Lance Leipold says in a statement Wednesday that Jackson has placed his name into the NCAA transfer portal. Leipold says he and Jackson have had "good open talks" regarding the future, and adds the player is considering all options, including staying at Buffalo. Being placed in the portal allows players to have contact with other schools. Jackson is a redshirt junior who already has graduated, which would allow him to transfer and immediately play next year.

Jackson was the Mid-American Conference offensive player of the year, helping Buffalo set a single-season record in victories and clinch its fourth bowl appearance. The Bulls finished 10-4 following a 42-32 loss to Troy in the Dollar General Bowl on Saturday. Jackson finished with a career-high 3,131 yards passing for 28 touchdowns, one short of matching the school's single-season record, and 12 interceptions this season. He also scored seven touchdowns rushing. Overall, Jackson has completed 56 percent of his passes for 6,999 yards with 49 touchdowns and 24 interceptions in 32 career games. Buffalo is losing its top receiver, Anthony Johnson, to graduation. - AP College Football
