Here’s what was said about Jackson, the league’s No. 1 quarterback:

The reigning Heisman Trophy winner begins the preseason quarterback rankings where he left off in 2016. Jackson may not match his 2016 totals this fall, but the dynamic junior will keep Louisville in contention for a New Year’s Six bowl and a spot among the ACC’s top teams. In 13 games last season, Jackson threw for 3,543 yards and 30 scores and added 1,571 yards and 21 touchdowns on the ground.
