Jackson hits and brings pain

One of the 2008 signees that has a chance to make an immediate impact in Athens is Toby Jackson. Jackson has the size, strength, athleticism, and football skills to play inside Sanford Stadium in 2008.

The 6-foot-4, 255-pound athletic end had to move to linebacker after game three in 2007 because schools would run away from him.

Opposing quarterbacks would step up to the center and check off to the opposite side Jackson lined up at, so he moved to middle linebacker. Most guys his size could not make that move and still make an impact, but he went on to average over 10 tackles a game there.

We were out to see him there when Griffin hosted Riverdale and you can see just how athletic he is in these clips.

Jackson is one we expect to play early, very early when he gets to Athens and you can see a glimpse of his ability right here.
