    He is also trying to be a leader on the team.

    "This year my coach has told me that I need to lead the team, so, when I see us down that is what I try to do," said Jeffries.

    He is not letting the recruiting attention become an obstacle.

    "Right now, I am just focusing on my (high) school," said Jeffries, who has only taken one unofficial visit, that to Ole Miss. "Later on, I will look into the (colleges) and see what is best for me."
