Video: Jackson shows strength and agility
We traveled down to Franklin (Ga.) - Heard County recently to visit running back Dontavius Jackson.

Prospect: Dontavius Jackson
High School: Heard County (Franklin, Ga.)
Position: Running Back
Vitals: 5-11, 196-pounds, 4.5
Offers: Clemson, Florida, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, and Ole Miss
