DJ Jeffries Is Coming To Kentucky

With three players having committed to join the Kentucky basketball program this summer, John Calipari and his staff got an early start on the 2019 class Monday night.

Jeffries chose United Kingdom over fellow finalists Alabama and Mississippi State, but the Cats had emerged as major favorites in his recruitment over the past few months.

The 6-7 Jeffries had 35 points in a 91-74 victory by Olive Branch (Miss.) over Adair County at Hoopfest with Calipari and assistant coach Kenny Payne watching him play.

Calipari extended a scholarship offer to the Memphis-area standout during a visit in September, just the second offer to a 2019 recruit by the United Kingdom coach, who hosted Jeffries for Big Blue Madness a month later. He picked the Cats over Alabama and Mississippi State and is Calipari's first commitment in the 2019 recruiting class. He's a good passer, too. "I like his energy", says Daniels. He's also an athletic prospect who can play in transition. He's the No. 17 player on the ESPN Top 60 for 2019, and the No. 26 overall player for 247Sports.

"I think shooting is an area that he can continue to get better at", Daniels said. He lacks a little polish in some areas.

'He really does whatever we need him to do. The Kentucky coach saw the young star as many as four times during the past season, including his appearance in Jackson last week to watch Jeffries and the Quistors defeat Callaway 71-50 in the state semifinals at Mississippi Coliseum. While he has promised his family that he will complete his schooling at some point, his plan is to play one year at Kentucky and look at playing at a higher level after that.

Jeffries was also offered a scholarship by Kansas, Texas A&M and Memphis, among others.

Jeffries has played for Penny Hardaway's successful "Team Penny" AAU program and with Hardaway linked by many as a possible replacement if Memphis basketball coach Tubby Smith is let go by the Tigers, as is recent speculation, Jeffries admitted that if Hardaway, now the head coach at Memphis East High, is named to lead Memphis, he would have to look at that.

United Kingdom assist coach Joel Justus goes on twitter and says #whowantstobenext.

Nearly 10 years later, it looks like Memphis' loss will once again be UK's gain.
