Missouri Lands Ole Miss Transfer Wide Receiver Dannis Jackson

Missouri adds yet another transfer wide receiver in this recruiting class with the addition of Ole Miss’ Dannis Jackson

NCAA Football: Liberty at Mississippi Matt Bush-USA TODAY Sports

For the second time in this offseason, the Missouri Tigers have added a transfer wide receiver from another Power Five school in their 2023 recruiting class. This time, it’s within the SEC.

Joining Oklahoma transfer WR Theo Wease is Ole Miss transfer WR Dannis Jackson.

Jackson was a former four-star prospect in the 2019 recruiting class and was originally committed to Mississippi State — but signed with the Rebels in July of 2018.

Jackson spent three seasons at Ole Miss and didn’t play last season with the Rebels. His most productive year was 2021 in his junior season — where he had 12 receptions for 244 yards and two touchdowns.

According to Rivals’ Transfer Tracker, Jackson is listed as the 84th best transfer available in the country.

Now committed to Mizzou, Jackson will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Welcome to Mizzou, Dannis! M-I-Z!

Despite not getting a whole lot of playing time with Ole Miss, there is still some potential here with Jackson as he shows some speed and good route running ability. Perhaps Jackson can live up to his full potential with a change of scenery type move to Missouri.
