Freshman Preview: Griffin's Toby Jackson

As the 2008 college football season draws closer, will take a look at 2007-08 Georgia high school prospects as they make the transition to their respective colleges. Next on our list: former Griffin High star Toby Jackson.

The ninth-ranked defensive end prospect in the country for 2008, former Griffin High star Toby Jackson was rated the sixth-best player in the Peach State last year.

Recruitment: Jackson committed to Georgia on June 3, 2007 but maintained throughout the majority of his senior year that he was still open. That admission meant that the nation's premier football programs kept checking in with the 6-4, 240-pounder. In the end, however, Jackson stuck with his original choice and became a Bulldog.

At Georgia:Jackson is still awaiting a test score before it's known whether or not he will get to enroll with the rest of the incoming freshman class. Assuming Jackson does get in he will have the chance to fight for playing time at position that features two other incoming freshman in Jeremy Longo and Cornelius Washington.
