Jefferson has rushed for almost 1,900 yards and 23 touchdowns for the Miners, one of the top rushing totals in the state.
"I'm hearing from Boise State, Oregon, Texas A&M, Cal Poly, Portland State and then UCLA has been checking out my film," said Jefferson. "I definitely want to play running back and that's what schools are recruiting me for."
The two WAC foes, Nevada and Fresno State, lead for Jefferson, and they've been recruiting him hard.
"Right now, the teams that are in recruiting battle has been Nevada and Fresno State," said Jefferson. "People around Visalia are telling me I should go to Fresno State but we'll see what happens in the end."
Jefferson is scheduled to visit Nevada next month, his first official visit.
"I haven't really set a time that I want to decide," said Jefferson. "My top five schools are Nevada, Fresno State, Oregon, Boise State and Cal Poly. I definitely want to take a few visits."
Academically, Jefferson is in fine shape with a 3.5 GPA and a 1300 on the SAT.
