BRENTWOOD, Tenn. — With his senior season already underway, Van Jefferson wanted to put a cap on his recruitment before the calendar flipped over to September.
The No. 24-rated senior wide receiver in the nation is taking his talents to the Southeastern Conference as the 6-foot-2 1/2, 172-pounder declared his intentions Monday to play for Georgia.
As a junior Jefferson caught 81 passes for 1,231 yards with 16 touchdowns. That earned him a spot on the Tennessee Sports Writers Association's Class 6A team.
He is the son of Tennessee Titans wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson.
