MOBILE, Ala. — Former University at Buffalo Quarterback, Tyree Jackson, is making a name for himself after declaring for the NFL Draft earlier this year.

Jackson's performance earned him the title of the South team's Most Valuable Player.

Jackson was also joined by UB teammate, wide receiver Anthony Johnson. It's the first time the Bulls have had two players in the game.
