Deondre Jackson announced Tuesday that he is no longer transferring to Nebraska.

The former Texas A&M running back entered the transfer portal in January and committed to the Cornhuskers soon after. However, he was ineligible to enroll due to academic issues.

Jackson remained a student at Texas A&M while still technically on the transfer portal. He told everyone on Twitter to "forget all the little rumors" because he still intended on playing for the Cornhuskers.

On Tuesday, Jackson confirmed in a Twitter post that those plans are no longer in line.

"No I will not be attending Nebraska anymore but thanks to all the fans for welcoming me!"

Jackson received just three handoffs over two seasons with the Aggies. Last year, the 5-foot-11, 215-pound back went backward on his only carry for minus-two yards.

The Georgia native entered Texas A&M as a three-star recruit with scholarship offers from other prominent programs such as Auburn and Florida. Jackson's next step is uncertain.
