Emmanuel Jefferies took his official visit to the campus of ULM this weekend and was so impressed the minute he got here, he knew this was where his football career would continue.

"First off the environment was exactly what I was looking for in a college. It's close to home and feels just like home, I really like it here" said Jefferies.

I felt comfortable around the ULM players and enjoyed my visit with the coaching staff. Keavon Milton was my host and he told me about his experience with ULM so far and showed me around campus. I talked to my position Coach Tommerdahl while I was here. He said he was looking forward to working with me and that I would be a big factor for ULM".

Jefferies was holding offers from South Alabama, Northwestern State, Alcorn State and Jackson State to name a few. "My roommate Khairi Usher and I had already been talking and ULM has been #1 on our list, this visit just solidified it".

Another draw for Emmanuel was the campus of ULM. "I like the fact that its not spread out all over the place like you see a lot of campuses. All my classes will be within a mile of each other".

Forrest high school head Coach Mario Lane had this to say about Emmanuel.

Emmanuel is a hard worker and he is dependable. He is a young man that the ULM coaching staff is not going to have to worry about showing up for practices and team meetings. As a three year player for me he never missed a summer workout. Emmanuel is a well mannered young man with a ton of upside".

"He is 6'4 220 pounds and can easily hold 20 more pounds or more, he is not finished growing".

Jefferies is planning on earning a degree in Computer Science when he enrolls. "I talked to some of the professors and I really like the CS program, it's a lot of hands on situations and I like that".

Jefferies had 30 catches for 537 yards and 7 TD's in 2008.
