BATON ROUGE, LA (WVUE) - A busy spring semester of football practice and track team competitions for Riverdale product Donte Jackson just got cleared out due to academic ineligibility, according to a report by FOX 8's partners at NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune.

The cornerback and returner was not at practice Tuesday and according to the report he "fell short short of the necessary hours needed for the spring semester and will be eligible for the fall by making up the class."

Coach Les Miles was not scheduled to speak to the media after the session. Jackson played in all 12 games as a freshman, recording one interception and 26 tackles.
