Another top college football quarterback is reportedly considering a transfer after putting his name in the transfer portal. Virginia Tech quarterback Josh Jackson has reportedly put his name in the transfer portal and is seeking a move to another university.

Jackson does not have to transfer from Virginia Tech after putting his name in the portal, though it looks like he could be on the move. He entered the 2018 college football season as the starter before suffering a season-ending injury.

Jackson broke his fibula in the team's upset loss to Old Dominion during the 2018 campaign. Former Kansas quarterback Ryan Willis came in and led the Hokies to a 4-6 record over the team's final 10 games.

Jackson led the Hokies to a 9-4 record in his first season as a starter in 2017 and would likely be the team's starting quarterback if he's fully recovered for the 2019 season.

In his 16 games as a starter, Jackson completed just under 60-percent of his passes for over 3,500 yards and 25 touchdowns to just 10 interceptions.

A string of transfer from the Virginia Tech program prompted head coach Justin Fuente to release a statement about the state of the Hokies program.

We'll have to wait and see if Jackson makes a move.
