Auburn’s offense will retain one of its top receivers with senior Shedrick Jackson announcing his intentions to return to Auburn for one last go-around on Instagram on Wednesday.
Jackson, the nephew of Auburn multi-sport legend Bo Jackson, will suit for Auburn for one final season and should be one of the primary contributors for the future of Auburn’s offense with a current lack of experience in Auburn’s young receiving core.
Earlier this week, the offense took a hit when it was confirmed that Kobe Hudson, the leading receiver for the 2021 season, would not be returning to Auburn.
With the news that Jackson will have one more go-around with his families’ alma mater, Auburn will retain at least one of it’s experienced ball catchers, after losing all three of its top receivers the season prior.
2021 proved to be a breakout year for the former 3-star out of Hoover, as Jackson capped over 500 yards receiving for the first time in his collegiate career on 40 catches.
His first 100-yard game was achieved with just seven receptions in Auburn’s close loss to the Gamecocks in November.
