Buffalo star quarterback Tyree Jackson has put his name in the NCAA transfer portal, which could potentially make him a major commodity for teams looking for a one-year grad transfer at the most important position on the field.

According to ESPN's Adam Rittenberg, Jackson is considering all options for next season. He could pursue a graduate transfer somewhere, or he could elect to enter the 2019 NFL Draft.

Jackson is viewed as a developmental prospect at the next level right now, so he would likely be chosen late in the draft or potentially have to go the undrafted free agent route.

Rittenberg also didn't rule out Jackson ultimately returning to Buffalo.

Jackson won the MAC Offensive Player of the Year Award this season, putting up 3,131 passing yards and 28 touchdowns. Buffalo finished 10-4 and reached the Dollar General Bowl.

The 6-foot-7, 245-pounder is regarded as a physically-gifted, yet raw quarterback.

If he does transfer, he should be widely-pursued.
