The Grades Are In

When Marlon Lucky qualified for the University of Nebraska, many cheered the soon arrival of a tremendous runningback. With the situation of fellow classmate and runningback Leon Jackson in doubt, several Cornhusker fans were left wondering if Leon would be able to qualify much like Lucky or not. We now have the answer.

Marlon Lucky qualifying was almost as climactic as the commit itself, the Husker fan base hanging on the edge, waiting for the inevitable, but hopeful word.


Since then, the focus switched to other players, none more-so than another running back, this one just a bit north of Lucky's domain.


Upon hearing late in his high school career about a learning disability he was diagnosed with just this past year, the anticipation behind Leon Jackson's qualification status has been intense across Husker land.


Now, that anticipation is over.


"I scored an 800 which I needed and a 2.55 (for core GPA) and I have a 2.57, so I'm good," Jackson said.


Jackson went on to say that he would be reporting in, in Lincoln during the month of July, where he will join his fellow classmates from the monumental class of 2005.


His status now being official as a Husker-to-be leaves only Brodrick Hunter and Jordan Picou as the still looming question marks remaining as to whether they will make the grade or not.
