Dezmon Jackson has settled on a landing spot, and it’s kinda WAC.

The veteran Cowboy running back will spend his final season of eligibility at Sam Houston State, members of the Western Athletic Conference, according to a pledge he made on Twitter.

Jackson came to OSU by way of Hutchinson Community College in 2019, but injuries hampered his ability to make an immediate impact. In 2020, Jackson was OSU’s second-leading rusher behind Chuba Hubbard, racking up 547 yards and four touchdowns while averaging 5.5 yards per carry.

His career performance came in a win against Texas Tech that season. Jackson chewed up 235 yards and three touchdowns. He could have had four but decided to slide his team to a victory instead.

Jackson once again dealt with injury issues in 2021, but was OSU’s fourth-leading rusher. Unfortunately, he will likely be remembered by OSU fans by the yard he didn’t gain. With a chance to go ahead in the Big 12 Championship, Jackson came up just short on fourth down.

The Cowboys also lose leading rushing Jaylen Warren and LD Brown to eligibility, but return some enticing producers in Dominic Richardson and Jaden Nixon and signed a pair of four-star rushers in Ollie Gordon and CJ Brown.
