Toby Jackson Checks Out Auburn

Toby Jackson, a standout at the Scout.com Elite 150 Camp, was also impressive at a football camp at Auburn.

Griffin, Ga.--Toby Jackson, a recent verbal commitment to the Georgia Bulldogs, is considered one of the top football prospects in the southeast for the 2008 recruiting class.

Although Jackson notes he is still committed to the Bulldogs, he points out that he is still checking out other colleges and probably will for a while. On Sunday he got an up-close-and-personal look at Auburn.

The six-foot-four, 240-pounder from Griffin, Ga., High School didn't participate on day one of Auburn's Junior-Senior Camp on Saturday, but on day two he joined the action and was one of the most impressive players at the Sunday workouts from a group of more than 400 who participated.

"It was a good camp and I learned a lot and I got a chance to meet the Auburn coaches," Jackson says. "I like Auburn and it was a good experience."

Toby Jackson partcipates in a drill at Auburn's camp.

One of the most interesting experiences was a one-on-one pass rush/protection drill where Jackson was matched against giant offensive lineman Greg McGrue from Huffman High in Birmingham, who is six-foot-seven, 360 pounds.

Jackson lost the first round vs. the offensive tackle, but used his exceptional quickness to win two out of three.
