Rated a four-star prospect as a high school senior a season ago, Dontavius Jackson was ranked the No. 23 running back in the nation.
Recruitment: The former Heard County star had his choice of college programs. But in the end Georgia was the place for him. Jackson committed to the Bulldogs in late Octover after visits to Athens and out-of-state trips to LSU and Clemson.
At Georgia:Jackson enrolled early at UGA, thus giving him an advantage over many other incoming freshmen. At Georgia, Jackson used the spring semester to learn the playbook and get acclimated to the college game. He ended spring practices in a heated battle with fellow first-year player and early enrollee Richard Samuel for the third-string tailback position behind Knowshon Moreno and Caleb King. It's unlikely that Jackson will redshirt his freshman year.
