Tennessee safety Janzen Jackson has apparently resolved his personal issues, and has enrolled at Tennessee for the second semester of summer classes according to Andrew Gribble of GoVolsExtra.com.
Jackson is one of my top safety prospects for the 2012 NFL Draft, and he left the team for personal reasons at the end of the season in which he led the Volunteers with five interceptions. According to a release from the Tennessee Athletic Department, the football program expects Jackson to be a “full participant” in team practices beginning in August.
This is a huge development for the Tennessee football program, which really needs Jackson in the backfield along with fellow returning safety Prentiss Waggner to form one of the SEC’s top duos at that position.
Jackson has started 22 games for the Vols and is one of the hardest hitters in the country.
