Jefferson is a big name in the transfer portal and his visit to Kentucky is significant. The Wildcats have been recruiting him hard since he entered the portal and they are one of the frontrunners for his services. Jefferson is a talented running back who would be a huge addition to Kentucky’s offense. He would give the Wildcats’ an explosive playmaker in the backfield and a threat to score every time he touches the ball.
Jefferson is originally from Bronx, New York and he started his college career at Maine. He had a great season as a redshirt freshman in 2018, rushing for over 1000 yards and 13 touchdowns. Jefferson then transferred to Garden City Community College before landing at Sam Houston
