Michigan wide receiver Giles Jackson has entered the transfer portal. Jackson went through a surgery this off-season after his second year in a Wolverines uniform.

A member of the class of 2019, I gave Jackson a TTB Rating of 75 (LINK) and he ended up as a 76.

Hit the jump for more.

Jackson was not a huge factor on the offensive side of the ball, but he was a threat in the kickoff return game, where he had two career return touchdowns (Maryland in 2019, Rutgers in 2020). Altogether, he averaged 26.4 yards/return in his career.

For his career, he caught 24 passes for 309 yards (12.9 yards/catch) and 1 touchdown, and he rushed the ball 12 times for 74 yards (6.2 yards/attempt) and 1 touchdown.

Rumors abounded this off-season that Jackson had played his final game in Ann Arbor, and that finally came to fruition. He was not as heavily involved in Michigan’s offense as he should have been – from a football perspective – and the Wolverines failed to use his talents effectively. Ultimately, you have to have the right quarterback and game planning mentality to use someone like Jackson effectively.

Michigan now has 87 scholarship players lined up to play in the fall (LINK). Jackson is the fourth player to transfer from that 2019 class, joining LB Charles Thomas, C Zach Carpenter, and RB Zach Charbonnet.
