Koilan Jackson is the third son of Little Rock’s Keith Jackson to play major college football, following Keith Jr. at Arkansas and Kenyon at Illinois. Keith Jackson
Sr. was an All-American at Oklahoma and a six-time Pro Bowler in the NFL who is in
the College Football Hall of Fame.
Koilan Jackson was asked whether there is pressure to play immediately because all of his family members did.
“Not just didn’t redshirt, but they all started their freshman year,” he said. “In the Jackson family, it’s an expectation. I’m just going to take it step by step and see what comes of it.”
