AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas freshman linebacker Tevin Jackson is ineligible to play and can't enroll in school because he has not yet been cleared by the NCAA.
The university said in a statement Thursday that an issue with Jackson's high school transcript has kept him from being ruled eligible.
University officials "will continue to pursue getting the issue resolved in order for Jackson to enroll." But if the situation isn't resolved quickly, he'll be unable to enroll this semester and won't be eligible to play for the Longhorns.
The 6-foot-2, 230 Jackson, from Garland, was an All-State at linebacker in 2009.
