Discussion in 'College Football' started by Highstreet, Feb 14, 2005.

    Highstreet Freshman

    Kankakee (IL)

    Height: 6-foot-0.5 [​IMG]
    Weight: 210 pounds
    40-yard dash: 4.9 seconds
    [​IMG]
    Bench reps: 5 [​IMG]
    Squat max: 375 pounds
    Vertical leap: 28 inches

    Shuttle time: 4.59 seconds [​IMG]
    GPA: 3.0


    List: Ohio State, Illini, Northwestern, Iowa, N. Dame, Purdue, Wisky

    Jefferson was named
    all-state as a junior after racking up 113 tackles, 55 of those tackles were solo and he had 5 sacks.

    Four-year varsity starter. Jefferson is the son of Kankakee head coach Ira Jefferson. Dustin is a very good athlete that has played defensive end and tight end for most of his high school career. He's being recruited as an athlete but projects as a linebacker or safety. Dustin had 113 tackles, 55 solo tackles and 5 sacks as a junior.

    Coaches Comments: - Dustin is tremendously quick coming off the edge. He's had the advantage of being around the game his entire life because of me and he understands the game of football. I can play Dustin at any position on the field and I wouldn't get hurt. He's the best player I've ever coached. One college recruiter said that Dustin reminded him of Leonard Little - Kankakee coach Ira Jefferson.

    He is getting hand written mail from most of his favorites(no tOSU). Jefferson visited Champaigne and Iowa City this weekend. He had agood time talking with the coaches at Iowa and Illinois. He will be attending Junior Days at Purdue and Northwestern in the upcoming weeks. He projects as an OLB, and has a 3.0 GPA.

    From Scout.com...Dustin visited Northwestern last weekend and has decided that they are not a good fit for him. He has also attended junior days at Illinois and Iowa, and will be visiting Purdue.

    Linebacker Dustin Jefferson out of Kankakee, (Ill.) will be a Midwest “Hot 100” prospect in 2005. Jefferson has received early interest from schools in every major D-1 conference.

    Ohio St., Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin are his top schools with Ohio State and Illinios leading.

    He mentioned OSU's prestige and the 105,000 fans that pack the horseshoe and also the fact they have numerous NFL linbackers.

    Perfect example on how kids change their minds all the time. Up in post #3 above, he said on Feb 23 that he "favors Notre Dame, Iowa, Illinois and Tennessee". Just over two months later we go from not even being in his favorites to being the leader.

    </td> <td valign="top"> Champaign Combine - Super Sleepers
    By Chris Pool Midwest Recruiting Analyst
    Date: Apr 29, 2005

    We’ve already taken a look at the top performers from the Champaign combine, held last Saturday on the campus of the University of Illinois. Tomorrow, Scout.com, rolls into Auburn, Ala., for our next combine stop. Before we preview Auburn, let’s take a look at a few sleepers from Champaign that we’ll be keeping a close eye on in 2005.

    1. DE Dustin Jefferson, 6-1, 205, Kankakee, Illinois

    Jefferson isn’t much of a sleeper. He already has some scholarship offers under his belt, including one from Illinois. The reason Jefferson is on this sleeper list is because of how he performed last weekend. Dustin competed against prospects 100-pounds heavier than he was and he dominated with his quickness. Jefferson was all business last weekend and he’s going to have a huge senior season.

    Dustin recently received an offer from Northern Illinois. NIU, Iowa, Illinois, Ohio State, Boston College, Michigan State, Purdue, Wisconsin and Wyoming have all visited Dustin's school in the past few weeks.
    Iowa and Illinois (offer) are two schools he is looking at hard.

    Jefferson is focusing on Illinois, Iowa, Ohio State, North Carolina, Purdue, and Northern Illinois at this point. Ohio State has called this month and he will be attending camp at OSU in June.

    Apparently that 4.9 40-yard dash is now down in the 4.7 range, which makes him a much more attractive prospect as a DE...

    ol104 RIP Neutron Man

    Jefferson must really be a player because his measurable are less than ideal for a DE...6' 0.5" 210 lbs w/ a 4.7

    I am pleasantly surprised to see us making waves in IL this year, there is generally a lot of talent in that state.

    Illinois is his leader at this point. Jefferson wants to visit Ohio State and Purdue this summer. Dustin is looking at Illinois (offer), Iowa, Ohio State, North Carolina, Purdue, and Northern Illinois (offer).
