ATHENS, Ga. -- As the Georgia Bulldogs won their ninth game in a row, defeating Kentucky 19-10 to capture the SEC East title Saturday, one of their top targets, Blake Jackson (Scottsdale, Ariz./Scottsdale CC), was on campus for an official visit. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound prospect could fill the Bulldogs' needs at both tight end and receiver. After a summer official to Miami and an earlier trip to Arkansas, Jackson spoke well of his time in Athens.

"I had a great trip," Jackson said. "It was really amazing. It was everything it needed to be. I am really excited about Georgia right now."

Born in Augusta, Ga., Jackson was accompanied on his official by his father, a Georgia fan who lives in Conyers. Hosted by freshman Sterling Bailey, Jackson got to take in the Bulldogs' celebration of their fourth trip to the SEC championship with head coach Mark Richt.
