Third School In For Jefferson

Arizona joins Oregon and UCLA for the four-star cornerback from Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral, Anthony Jefferson, who is still set to announce next week on Signing Day...

Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral athlete Anthony Jefferson (6-2, 180) had narrowed his list down to two schools, but an official visit to Arizona this past weekend, now has his list to three.

Oregon and UCLA were the two frontrunners for Jefferson, but he enjoyed his time in Tucson so much that the Wildcats have joined the fray.

"My visit was good, I had a really good time there," said Jefferson. "My host was Robert Golden. They like me as a cornerback and I liked everything about it so I'm now considering them with Oregon and UCLA."

Arizona was one of the first schools to offer Jefferson, but they've made a big push in the last weeks.

"They were always recruiting me, but they started recruiting me hard in the last couple of weeks and wanted me to come and take a visit," said Jefferson.

This week, Chip Kelly from Oregon and Mike Stoops from Arizona will be having in-home visits with Jefferson, and UCLA will also send assistant coach Todd Howard to visit.

"I'll talk with the coaches of each school and I'll consider everything and I'll have my decision next week for Signing Day," said Jefferson.

The four-star cornerback will be announce his decision on Signing Day on FSN's High School Spotlight.

Jefferson is planning to do track in the spring for Cathedral. He's coming off a senior year that saw the Phantoms go 11-2 and make it to the CIF-SS Northwest Division semifinals. On defense, he had 42 tackles, two interceptions and a sack. Offensively, he caught 63 passes for 1,286 yards and scored 15 touchdowns while rushing for 222 yards and three touchdowns on 27 carries.
