GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Cam Jackson is coming back for another year with the Florida Gators. The junior nose tackle announced Wednesday that he’s returning for his senior season.

Jackson turned down invitations to play in both the Reese’s Senior Bowl and East-West Shrine Bowl ahead of the 2024 NFL Draft. He also lost his position coach, Sean Spencer, on Monday.

Cam Jackson started 11 games on the defensive line this season, missing the Arkansas game due to injury. He totaled 32 tackles (18 solo), 0.5 TFL and 2 pass break-ups.

His best performance came in Florida’s 26-16 win over No. 11 Tennessee. He recorded a season-high five tackles and five solo stops, earning SEC co-Defensive Lineman of the Week honors.

“With me coming to the SEC, I feel like I can come in and show what I really can do,” Jackson said in training camp. “Everybody’s seen what I did in Memphis and what I can do there. Now I feel like it’s time for me to come here and show what I can do.”

Jackson appeared in 34 games at Memphis, including every game in back-to-back seasons. He started all 13 games at NT in 2022 and totaled 51 tackles, five sacks, four quarterback hurries and 2.5 TFLs.
