Jackson is back

After announcing one week ago that running back Leon Jackson had left the Nebraska football team, NU head coach Bill Callahan said on Tuesday that the sophomore from Pasco, Wash. has decided not to leave the program after all.

"Today Leon Jackson was re-instated to our team after he and I met and discussed several topics," Callahan said. "He indicated to me that he wants to be here at Nebraska and contribute to our football team. We are giving Leon another opportunity to flourish as a student-athlete.
