One of Mississippi's most wanted player is North Pike HS Defensive End A.J. Jefferson. The 6ft 3 250lb play maker has several offers and plans on taking some trips and deciding late. One of the school's thats still in the race is Louisiana's Ragin Cajuns. Jefferson hears from them all the time and their persistence is paying off. The Cajun Redzone talks to Jefferson about recruiting.

Jefferson lists 6 school's that he hears from often and is looking at and considering.

"I am looking hard at Mississippi State, UL, Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Memphis, and Louisiana Tech. Those school's are recruiting me the hardest and showing me the most love. I went to an Ole Miss game against Alabama. It was alot of fun. Alot of folks left in the 3rd quarter but a good many stayed and cheered for the Rebels so I really had a good time. Mississippi State called and they want me to take my official visit during the Egg Bowl, and thats what I am going to do. I cant wait to visit there."

One of the school's in Jefferson's final 6 is Louisiana's Ragin Cajuns. He has been on campus several times and gets frequent mail and calls from UL's main man.

"Coach Hud is relentless. He calls and sends mail all the time. One of the things he told me that stood out to me is that the Cajuns are the only school thats recruiting me that is bowl eligible. I had to think about that. One of the things that stands out about them is the fact that I know I can go down there and play early. Plus Coach Hud said he would take me and my teammate Vernon Butler. We talk about playing together in college every single day. I am not sure any other school can offer that, so it for sure makes them stand out to me. I will make a decision around signing day, but UL has as good a shot as anyone."
