Vegas Spotlight: Davon Jefferson

Davon Jefferson is a 6-8, 205-pound forward prospect from Lynwood, California, and Jefferson's H-Squad is tearing it up at the Reebok Big Time tournament in Las Vegas, to no one's surprise. Jefferson is a big part of that success.

"We are in the semis right now," Jefferson told "We are 5-0. I've been playing good, averaging about 25 a game."

When we spoke to Davon, H-Squad had just hammered the Ontario Cyclones from Canada 114-80. They went on to drill the Arkansas Hawks 86-65 to make it to the finals of their bracket.

During H-Squad's game with the Cyclones, Lute Olson (Arizona) and Lorenzo Romar (Washington) were there, as well as coaches from Michigan, UNLV and USC.

Jefferson is one of those rare athletes that can play every position on the floor. "I can dribble and I can shoot," he said. "A lot of people try to double-team me, so I get it to my teammates."

Davon averaged 21 points, 12 rebounds and 4 blocks for Lynwood last year. Those gaudy numbers got him early looks from a lot of top DI schools, and his continued good play through the AAU circuit this summer has reinforced his reputation as a top high-major prospect.

Jefferson expects to sign in November. "I'll take visits in the fall, but I haven't decided who I'll visit," he said.

But two schools are positioned nicely as the Davon Jefferson sweepstakes head down the home stretch, but it's neck and neck. "Both play the run-and-gun system," he said of his two leaders, Washington and Arizona. "Both like to get up and down and floor and shoot."

So what is Davon going to be looking at while determining if it's the Huskies or the Wildcats he'll sign with? "The coach and the talent there, the academics and how well I would fit in," he said. "Also the school." Top Stories
