Alabama's Chris Jackson looking to transfer

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

Alabama's Chris Jackson, who played last season as a true freshman on special teams, has been given the green light to transfer by coach Nick Saban.

However, Saban will not release Jackson to an SEC team, which means Duke and Georgia Tech in the ACC could both be possibilities.

Jackson came to Alabama as a receiver, moved to defensive back, but was back at receiver this past spring.
