​A wise man once said; go to class. 


Virginia Tech quarterback ​Josh Jackson has learned this the hard way, as his status for next season is unclear due to an academic issue. 


There is expected to be a ruling on the quarterback sooner rather than later. Jackson's father spoke with the Richmond Times-Dispatch to provide an update on the quarterback. 


"As of right now, Josh is still a member of the Virginia Tech football team,” Fred Jackson said Thursday by phone. “We’ll know more in two days. It’s too early to talk about this". 


For now the ​Hokies will hold their breathe till the NCAA rules on this situation. In his freshman season, Jackson threw for 2999 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. The Hokies will need their up and coming quarterback if they want to make any noise next season in the crowded ACC. 


If Jackson is ruled ineligible, Kansas transfer Ryan Willis is likely to start in his place. However, Willis has thrown 17 interceptions and 12 touchdowns in his career at Kansas. It's safe to say he wouldn't fill the void left by Jackson.


Stay in class kids.
