Junior cornerback Kameron Jackson announced via twitter today that he will declare himself eligible for the NFL draft.
“Did a lot of thinking over these past couple weeks. My mind is made up! I’ve decided to declare for the 2014 NFL Draft !” he tweeted.
A 5-foot-9 native of Long Beach, Jackson had his breakout game for Cal in 2011, intercepting three passes in a win over UCLA. He intercepted just one pass in 2012.
Coach Sonny Dykes confirmed last week that Jackson was among five juniors who requested draft evaluations from the NFL. The others were running back Brendan Bigelow, linebacker Khairi Fortt, receiver Richard Rodgers and safety Michael Lowe.
