Big get for UCF

South Recruiting Manager

One of the top junior college prospects in the country will sign with UCF on Wednesday morning.

"I have officially committed to UCF and I am excited about my opportunity to play there," Toby Jackson told Scout.

"It is close to home, I get to play with my brother (Kentarious Jackson committed to them over the weekend), and I feel I can make a big impact there."

Making that immediate impact is what Jackson is already thinking about.

"They have a couple of defensive ends leaving that are seniors, so I have a chance to come in, compete for that starting spot, and contribute right away. I want to get on the field, I am already looking forward to that, and I want to help the team quickly."

The 6-foot-5, 255 pound defensive end is originally out of Griffin, Ga. and he will sign with the Knights at Navarro Junior College in Texas on Wednesday morning.

Simmons Take: This is a huge get for UCF. Jackson is one of the top prospects to come out of Georgia in recent years. He is an end with a great first step, he explodes off the ball, and he will be in the backfield a lot when playing for UCF. If all goes right, Jackson will appear on NFL boards very quickly.

Chad Simmons started out with Scout in 2003 covering top talent in Georgia and other areas in the South. He then moved on to another Recruiting Service from 2004-2008 before returning to Scout the first of 2009 to become Southeast Recruiting Manager.
