Saban compares UGA’s John Jenkins to Mount Cody

Terrence Cody now plays for the Baltimore Ravens, but the former Alabama nose guard’s name has come up again this week with comparison’s to Georgia’s John Jenkins.

“He’s reminds me a lot of Cody when we had him here,” Alabama coach Nick Saban said. “He’s a hard guy to block.”

The 6-foot-3, 358-pound Jenkins followed Cody at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.

“I lived in his shadows my whole two years there,” said Jenkins, in his second season playing nose guard for Georgia. “For Nick Saban to give me that type of compliment, it’s a big deal. It’s almost an honor. Nick Saban is very respected in the college football world. He recruited Mount Cody.”

Jenkins drew interest from Alabama, but the Crimson Tide landed 6-4, 320-pound Jesse Williams, who is from Brisbane, Australia, via Western Arizona Community College.

“I don’t know if he was doing what I was doing,” Jenkins said. “I was looking like, ‘I don’t want to go here if he goes there.’”
