UGA Class of 2008: Immediate Impact

Who will play as a true freshman this fall in Athens? What class of 2008 signee will get on campus, work hard and be ready to make plays between the hedges in September of 2008?

The Dawgs finished with one of the top classes in the country as they check in at number six on Rivals.com. They lost tight end Dwayne Allen to the Clemson Tigers on National Signing Day, but Georgia still finished with a very talented and balanced class from top to bottom.

They signed a couple of five-star prospects, 14 four-star athletes and a lot of overall talent in the class of 2008. Who will play early? Who will see the field in 2008? Here are our five signees that we think have the best shot at playing this fall.

Immediate Impact

A.J. Green: Green is a 6-foot-4, 194-pound receiver with good speed, fabulous body control, and excellent hands. He runs very good routes, he can get to a lot of passes others can't and he is a big play threat at all times. He needs to add muscle and mass to his frame, but he has impact freshman written all over him. He could be the highly touted freshman receiver UGA has ever signed.

Toby Jackson: Jackson is a 6-foot-4, 255-pound explosive defensive end. He has everything you look for in a guy that plays his position. He can play the run, he can rush the passer, he has the frame you look for and he is very athletics. He will continue to grow and get bigger and he has drawn comparisons to Marcus Spears of the Dallas Cowboys. Jackson has a great first step, he uses his long arms in the passing lanes and we expect him to see the field early.
