JUCO Center Andre Jackson Is Not Eligible, Will Not Play For USF

New, 8 comments

While everyone is excited about football starting up, we need to bring you back down and talk about our men's basketball team. Greg Auman broke the news tonight that JUCO Center Andre Jackson did not meet NCAA transfer requirements and is not eligible to play for Stan Heath and the Bulls this year.

Jackson was going to provide some size down low with his 6'10 285 pound frame and help fill out the post rotation with Augustus Gilchrist, Ron Anderson Jr., and Toarlyn Fitzpatrick.

With Jackson unable to play for the Bulls this year, USF will have some serious depth issues in the post this year. Expect to see a lot of 4-guard sets with Victor Rudd most likely manning the 4 in those situations.

While Heath did receive some good news that 7'3" Freshman Jordan Omogbehin will be able to enroll at USF, but Jordan will have to redshirt this season.

How bad is this going to get? Are we talking 10 wins? 8 or less?
