Profle 2003 - Wes Jefferson (LB)
One of the nation's most coveted linebacker prospects is Wes Jefferson from the state of Maryland. He plays for Gwynn Park High School in Brandywine. According to Jefferson, he already has several offers.

"Maryland, Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan State, Syracuse, and Virginia have already offered me a scholarship in writing," said Jefferson. "I have all these letters in frames already. Right now, my three favorites are Maryland, Penn State and Ohio State."

Last season as a junior, Jefferson recorded 163 tackles, 13 sacks, and 3 interceptions. "I think I play similar to LaVarr Arrington. I knock myself out. That is how hard I hit. I pride myself on my hitting."

This season, Jefferson will also play running back, as he did as a sophomore. Last year, he played tight end in addition to linebacker. He will attend the Nike Camp at Penn State.
