Badgers' Jackson wants to red-shirt


MADISON, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Running back Montee Ball may be the star of the Badger football team, but he's not the only one with tons of talent in the backfield.

James White and Melvin Gordon are just a couple of guys ready and waiting for snaps. On Sunday four-star recruit Vonte Jackson said he will likely red-shirt this year. 

On Saturday, head coach Bret Bielema said he expected Jackson to help out on special teams this season. But, Jackson tweeted that he decided "not to waste a year on special teams."

Nothing's official just yet. Jackson said he's hoping to red-shirt.
