The offensive player that will have a breakout moment for Georgia football is Kearis Jackson. He may not seem like a likely candidate for this list, but in reality, he is because this year hasn’t gone how he needed it.
This young man has battled through injuries and finally, last week against Florida showed Dawg fans the player they all fell in love with the previous year.
Last week was his best performance on the season, catching three balls for 59 yards and the touchdown. On the season, he has 10 catches for 126 yards.
Jackson’s numbers aren’t fantastic because he only did special team returns for most of the season, but slowly the coaching staff got him back into the receiving lineup.
He has 13 punt returns on the season for 79 yards, and Jackson has three kick-off returns for 61 yards.
Jackson is the kind of guy who has excellent hands and can handle the return duties. He is like Mecole Hardman in that aspect.
However, it’s time for him to step up receiving wise. Jackson’s knee should be good to go, and the quarterback has got to get it in his hands.
This guy is a playmaker and will do whatever it takes to do so. An injury slowed him down a bit, but the junior shouldn’t let it deter him.
With four games left in the regular season, Jackson is a perfect time to make headway. Stetson Bennett and JT Daniels need to remember he knows how to do his job pretty well.
He led the team last year with 36 catches for 514 yards and three touchdowns. The only player who scored more was George Pickens.
Jackson will surprise some people in the next few weeks because there will be plenty of opportunity to as the Dawgs take on four teams, they can put up big numbers.
This stretch of games is for Jackson to shine in and get some stats added to his bio.
