SUMMIT, Miss. -- Louisiana Tech had much success with its defense this season. Specifically in its front four and secondary. Tech is looking at one high school for three players that fit that bill perfectly - North Pike High School.[details]
A tall, long-armed corner who exhibits good length and physicality when lined up in press coverage. Jefferson shows good coordination when extending his arms and has the ability to remain balanced as he reroutes receivers off the line. However, he's a bit leggy when asked to redirect and isn't the most fluid of cornerbacks. Jefferson is a natural bender in his drop but struggles to quickly break down and explode out of his breaks, with a tendency to drift. But once he gets his feet under him, he can quickly close on the ball. He displays good range downfield and has an ability to turn and run with receivers vertically. However, he opens up his hips too early and struggles to quickly regain his footwork and change directions.
