Coach Rich Brooks and the University of Kentucky received their fourth commitment for the 2007 class when Duran Jefferson decided to make it official for the Wildcats.

"I told coach Caragher last week that I was coming," said Jefferson. "I'm really excited about my decision to go to UK," stated Jefferson.

At 6-foot-1, Jefferson has a lot of length. He also possesses legitimate 4.5 forty speed. With added strength, and his size and speed, Jefferson can play on either side of the ball. Last season for Covington Holmes, Jefferson played quarterback, and threw for nearly 1,100 yards, and rushed for an additional 700 yards. While the numbers aren't staggering, it's the athleticism that he provides to whatever position he plays that stands out.

"I can play wide receiver or defensive back, it really doesn't make a difference," Jefferson said. "I can also return kickoffs and punts," Jefferson continued. "I'm best at wide receiver, but I think I'll make a difference where ever I play," Jefferson said.

Jefferson lists his speed, vision and aggressiveness as his strengths. The versatile athlete could become one of the best all around talents in the state this fall.

He was named Honorable Mention All-State and All-Northern Kentucky last season as a junior.
