TigerSportsDigest.com takes a quick glance at players who are flying under the radar right now but could have an impact in 2011.

Player (No.)/position: Jakhari Gore (3)/running back

Year (experience): Redshirt freshman

Height/weight: 5-9, 166

Where he came from: Christopher Columbus High (Miami, Fla.)

High school days: Rushed for 4,666 yards and 64 touchdowns

2011 impact: Battling for backup running back touches

Did you know: Jakhari is the cousin of current San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore

On his hard-nosed running style: “That’s the No. 1 thing that I feel I can do. I have a heart and I’m not terrified of anything. I love to run in between the tackles. I don’t mind running outside, but my biggest thing is that I like to run between the tackles.”

Quotable: “Spencer (Ware) is the guy right now, then myself, Michael Ford, and Alfred Blue will rotate in. We are all good running backs, and at the end of the day whoever we play against will have to deal with all four of us.”
