Jordan Jefferson’s quest to mature into the college quarterback he envisioned has seen plenty of work this summer, from work done through trainers down to an invitation to the Manning Passing Academy in Thibodaux, La. last weekend.
Next week, Jefferson will take to another side of leading his team: meeting with the media.
SEC Football Media Days, a three-day event that runs from July 21-23 at the Winfrey Hotel in Birmingham, Ala., will see Jefferson join Patrick Peterson, Kelvin Sheppard and head coach Les Miles as the Tigers representatives at the podium.
This is the first year that three players were allowed to attend. Last season Miles brought offensive tackle Ciron Black and linebacker Jacob Cutrera, a pair of seniors.
The Tigers are one of the last teams to take the stage, set to speak first in the 10:50 a.m. slot next Friday afternoon. Below is the complete schedule along with players set to attend.
