Kearis Jackson after his touchdown catch against Florida: ‘I’m back’
ATHENS — Kearis Jackson is one of the more selfless members of the Georgia football team. It’s rare for the junior receiver to draw attention to himself and he’s quick to praise others.
But after his performance against Florida, Jackson took to Instagram to make a simple statement about himself.
Jackson built a strong rapport with Bennett during the 2020 season, as he emerged as the go-to receiver when Bennett was under center for the first six games of that campaign. Bennett has once again resumed starting duties, as he’s been Georgia’s QB1 for the past four starts.
If Bennett remains the starting quarterback, it looks as if he would once again be able to lean on Jackson in key moments.
A player with lingering knee issues should not be able to make the kind of play that Jackson did against Florida. Perhaps that only further backs up Jackson’s statement and proves he is in fact back to the Jackson of old.
“He’s working really hard. He always works hard. He’s a great leader,” Smart said. “And very pleased with what Kearis (Jackson) does for this team.”
