Georgia Football: Jordan Jenkins shines in win over Gators

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

Georgia freshman linebacker Jordan Jenkins impressed his coaching staff and teammates with his effort against the Florida Gators.

Freshman linebacker Jordan Jenkins started his third game of the season for the Georgia Bulldogs in their 17-9 win over the Florida Gators. He has yet to show that he does not belong, and played well opposite Jarvis Jones. Jenkins had two tackles, a half tackle for a loss, and a quarterback hurry for the Dawgs' defense, which responded with a strong effort after senior safety Shawn Williams called the defense out for being soft. Jenkins referenced those comments while speaking after the game:

"We know what we’re doing, and we’re not soft," Jenkins said. "I feel like across the board everyone had that same mindset. That’s what brought us together."

Jenkins was able to see more time after Abry Jones was lost to injury, which made Cornelius Washington shift from linebacker up to defensive end. With Jones out for the rest of the season, Jenkins could see a lot of playing time ahead. He's played in all eight games this year, and has recorded 19 tackles, six tackles for a loss, three sacks, one forced fumble and eight quarterback hurries.
