Jefferson looking for home

Jefferson looking for home

A college decision may be years down the road for 2015 defensive tackle CeCe Jefferson, but he's already got plenty of big-time schools after him. Not surprisingly, the 6-foot-3, 260-pound sophomore doesn't have any leaders right now, but he has an idea of what he'll be looking for. Get the latest on Jefferson right here.

"My recruitment is still going really well, how it's always been. I'm just hoping that my name gets out there a little more and more schools get interested in me," CeCe Jefferson said.

The sophomore lineman already has eight offers: Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Auburn, Arkansas, Clemson, Louisville, and North Carolina. Still, there's a few schools he's hoping to hear from soon.

"I'm looking to hear from Georgia, actually I haven't heard from them at all, and they're right down the road from me. Georgia and LSU, I want to hear from those two," he said.

"Georgia, I like their style of defense, their defense is kind of like ours, with all the stunts and all of that, I think I could go there and not miss a beat."

"LSU, they're just tough, and I can relate to that."

The Baker County (Glen St. Mary, FL) standout lives just over an hour away from Gainesville, so it's pretty easy for him to visit Florida, which he's done a few times this season.

"I think Florida is a great atmosphere and it feels like home every time I step on the campus and it's so close, so my parents can come right down the road to see me play," he said.

Jefferson has no leaders and won't make a decision for quite some time, but it's that home-like atmosphere he'll be looking for down the road.

"First I want to go somewhere where I can get a great education, I want to go somewhere that feels like home," he said.

"Right now, I'm looking to stay close because I haven't really gotten to much attention from (further schools)."

Jefferson says his desire to stay close may change as he gets more attention from schools further away, but he's not thinking too hard about it quite yet.
