Rivals Article on Albert Jackson

Albert Jackson gets some recognition from the Rivals network and

I'm proud of Jackson for hanging in there and powering through his injuries so he could contribute this year. He ran the floor well with Dustin Ware. I don't know if his dunk last year in the SEC Tournament made ESPN's top plays, but he and Dustin Ware made it this year with Ware's behind the back pass and Jackson's slam to finish the break.

He had the shot that gave Georgia the lead. I think he traveled on that play, but that's part of the game. Sometimes the refs miss a call and it works to our advantage.

Jackson hit a couple of free throws, if memory serves me. And he had the big rebound at the end of the game to preserve Georgia's slim 1-point margin of victory.

Albert Jackson deserves the press. He's a 6' 10," 6' 11" guy with big hands and a powerful build. He has worked hard to get to this point, and we'll need him during the year.


Hopefully, Georgia's game against Virginia Tech is a sign of greater things to come. Our big men were just terrific. If our guards can start knocking down jumpshots, Georgia might win a few games.
