Jackson said he will undergo Tommy John surgery either Friday or Monday to be performed in Baton Rouge by Dr. Mark Field.
Jackson said he had injured the elbow during his sophomore season in high school, but it hasn't bothered him in some time. However, in the Tigers 34-7 win at Vanderbilt during football season, Jackson got hit on the elbow, thus making surgery necessary.
Jackson joined the Tiger baseball team midway through the season a year ago and provided a spark for Smoke Laval's team. Jackson, a John Curtis product, played in 36 games starting 28. Jackson hit .305 with a home run and 17 RBIs.
For Les Miles Tigers in 2005, Jackson averaged 41.5 yards per punt with a long of 60 yards. He converted 10 of 19 field goals, including a long of 50 yards, which he hit in Tigers' Peach Bowl win over Miami.
