After weeks of rumors it is finally official that Desmar Jackson will be heading to Southern Illinois to join Anthony Stewart who recently joined the staff. Jackson will have to sit out a year and then will have two years of eligibility left. He can use his redshirt year to cover 2011-12. The Salukis have struggled the last three years and their coach could be on the hot seat. Jackson may find himself sitting out this year and then find a new coach and staff in place at Southern Illinois next year when he is eligible.
