K-State Football Lands Former Ole Miss Wide Receiver Jadon Jackson

NCAA Football: Kansas State at Texas Tech

Kansas State added a piece to its wide receiver room over the weekend, as former Ole Miss wideout Jadon Jackson has announced he will transfer and play for the Wildcats in 2022.

Jackson, a former three-star from the 2019 class, spent three seasons with the Rebels and record 15 receptions in that time, including five in 2021.

Out of high school, Jackson held 14 Division I offers, chosing the Rebels over Georgia, Arkansas, Oklahoma State, Kentucky, and Missouri among others.


After recording four receptions for 30 yards against Alabama in Week 4, Jackson all but disappeared in the offense, grabbing a 12-yard reception against LSU as his only other recordable stat of the year.

With K-State returning Malik Knowles, Phillip Brooks, Kade Warner and several others, it could be a crowded room for Jackson to break through, but clearly with first-year offensive coordinator Collin Klein, Jackson felt confident enough that he could do so.

One of the biggest issues for the Wildcats offensively in recent years has been depth, so adding a player from an SEC West contender is great news.

Jackson is now the fifth transfer player on roster for K-State this offseason, joining QB Adrian Martinez (Nebraska), LB Will Honas (Nebraska), S Shawn Robinson (Missouri), and CB Joshua Hayes (Virginia).
