Tennessee vs. Georgia: Jordan Jenkins making most of playing time

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Georgia freshman linebacker Jordan Jenkins has set lofty goals for himself and is making the most of his playing time so far.

Georgia Bulldogs freshman linebacker Jordan Jenkins has played in every game so far this season and even started the game against Florida Atlantic. He recorded two sacks against Vanderbilt and recovered a fumble against the Missouri Tigers deep in opposing territory that set up a Bulldogs touchdown.

Still, as he told the Athens Banner-Herald, he sees room to grow, and has set quite a lofty number for himself as a goal to reach:

"My goal is somewhere near 10 sacks," Jenkins said. "I know that's a hard goal, but that's something I have my mind set on."

Ten sacks is a lot for any linebacker, let alone one who isn't a full-time starter. Jenkins said he could see his playing time lessen soon with the return of Alec Ogletree from suspension. But when he has been on the field, Jenkins has been effective. He even thinks his sack total should be higher than it already is:

"I really should actually have maybe three or four (sacks). Whenever I'm lined up on the right side, I burst off the edge, get past the lineman and he grabs my jersey. I think that's happened three times this season. I have to be a little bit faster."
