06:38 AM ET 07.06 | Malik Jackson, a defensive end who played as a reserve in every game for USC last season, is transferring to Tennessee. Jackson is the second USC player who has said he will transfer since USC was hit with sanctions by the NCAA last month. The penalties include four years' probation, a two-year bowl ban and the loss of 30 scholarships. Because of the two-year bowl ban, NCAA rules allow juniors and seniors to transfer without having to sit out a season.

"You're being mean to me, I'm going back to Mom's." This is like an ugly divorce now. Seriously though, Malik is going to be much better off in life having learned the hard way that you can't trust anyone over 29.

No, lane said he was okay with that, actually.

Everyone knows this was going to happen to this team. Who wants to play 11-12 games wit no BCS title on the line? This aint a story at all.......

OK, so can someone tell me about this kid? Was Jackson gonna be a starter? Is he gonna be an upperclassman (i.e., can he play for TN this season)?And I'm still more interested in how many of the 2010 kids bail. Will it just be Henderson? I'm starting to hear (unconfirmed) hints that there could be as many as a half dozen who go elsewhere. That, in my opinion, would be devastating for 'SC.

Yes , as a Junior he can play this year for the Vols because of the sanctions put on USC. Any Jr. or Sr. does not need to sit out a year if they transfer. He was to get serious playing time at DE this year at USC. Their roster, at present, lists only one DE. Jackson's name has been removed already.
