UK assist coach Joel Justus goes on twitter and says #whowantstobenext.
Great day for Cal and recruiting.
D.J. Jeffries, who wanted to play for Cal when he was a kid, and Cal was in Memphis is coming to UK.
Recently, Cal and assistant Kenny Payne watched the 6-7 combo forward in the Marshall County Hoop fest. He scored 35.
"He's really good," Evan Daniels, the Director of College recruiting for 247Sports and a College Insider for FS1. They have Jeffries as a 4-star and the 26th best player for the Class of 2019. "I like his energy," says Daniels.
Two days ago, Jeffries led his Olive Branch (Mississippi) team to the state championship. He picks UK over Alabama and Mississippi State.
Jeffries is UK's first commitment for the 2019 class.
