 Deon Jackson, Duke, Player News

  Duke's running back duo Deon Jackson and Mataeo Durant carried the game against Syracuse, both recording 150+ rushing yards. They became the first Blue Devils pair to rush for 150+ yards in a single game, and the first duo to rush for 100+ since three Duke players did so against Indiana five years ago. Jackson, who rushed for 169 yards, currently sits eighth in the ACC, averaging 82.40 yards per game. His total on Saturday ranks as the fourth most by a single rusher under Cutcliffe while Durant ranks as fifth (163 yards). "I feel like me and Deon are very much pretty similar, he's just a bigger back than I am. I feel like we have a lot of speed and we're both very powerful," Durant said. "We're just a great one-two punch overall-there's not a drop-off when he comes in or when I go in." - Herald Sun

  Duke guard Jacob Monk recently was asked about a preseason scrimmage and what offensive players caught his eye. "Deon Jackson," Monk quickly responded, "is a playmaker." That's what Duke needs him to be. Jackson, a 6-0, 220-pound senior running back, followed up a strong 2018 - 847 yards rushing, 5.26 yards per carry - with more modest numbers (641, 3.73) last season. The Blue Devils, ninth in the ACC in rushing in 2019, need Jackson at his best, making plays. And healthy. Duke coach David Cutcliffe has said the running back position is among the team's thinnest. Ideally, Cutcliffe said, a team needs five backs. The Blue Devils won't go into the season opener Saturday against Notre Dame with that much depth. Jackson gobbles up yards. In 37 career games, he has rushed for 1,585 yards (and 13 TDs) and caught 51 passes for 449. He also has returned 28 kickoffs for 611 yards and completed one pass. All total: 2,645 all-purpose yards. Jackson also is dependable with the ball in his hands. He has just four lost fumbles in 444 touches. - Herald Sun

The senior is currently 19th in Duke's all-time career rushing yards list and is only 316 yards shy of breaking into the top-10. His 847 rushing yards in 2018 was the highest total yards for a back in the David Cutcliffe era at Duke and the 10th highest in a single season in Blue Devil history. - Duke Football

  2020 PRESEASON DOAK WALKER AWARD WATCH LIST: Deon Jackson (Sr.), Duke,...A native of Atlanta, Ga., Jackson has amassed 1,585 yards and 13 touchdowns on 365 carries in addition to catching 51 passes for 449 yards and four scores in 37 career appearances, starting 20. On kick return duty, Jackson has returned 28 kickoffs for 611 yards. The rising senior is currently 19th in Duke's all-time career rushing yards and is only 316 yards shy of breaking into the top-10. His 847 rushing yards in 2018 was the highest total yards for a back in the David Cutcliffe era at Duke and the 10th highest in a single season in Blue Devil history. Against Pittsburgh in 2018, Jackson established a Duke record with 403 all-purpose yards (162 rushing, 89 receiving and 152 kickoff return) and was just the third player in ACC history to reach the 400 all-purpose yard plateau. - Duke Football

  He arrived at Duke more comfortable at wide receiver, prone to late-night fast-food cravings that added the wrong kind of weight to his 6-foot frame. Now Deon Jackson is a different person mentally and physically, and those are good things for the Blue Devils. Last fall as a sophomore, Jackson emerged as one of the ACC's most explosive threats on offense, given his ability to produce big plays in the running, passing and return games.

His versatility gives Duke hope its offense can be productive this season even after quarterback Daniel Jones left a year early to become the No. 6 overall pick in last April's NFL Draft. "The versatility of Deon creates a lot of possibilities," Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. "I really believe he may be the most versatile back that I've been around in my career." - Herald Sun
