Jefferson will begin his Bronco career in 2003-04 and have four years of eligibility. The national signing period began Wednesday morning.
"We are thrilled about adding a player of Mike's caliber to
our program," McCullum said. "He is jet-quick, exciting to watch,
and will add a dimension to our team we have yet to see."
Jefferson, a 5-9, 170-pound point guard, helped guide
Westport High School as a junior to its first state tournament
appearance in 25 years. The team finished fourth in Class 4A in the
postseason tourney, posting a 23-7 record en route to the final four
Jefferson averaged 16.0 points and 4.0 rebounds per game in
2001-02 while leading the city with 84 3-pointers made. His efforts
earned him a spot on the Kansas City Star's All-Metro Team along
with the all-district and all-state squads. Jefferson was also
tabbed the program's most valuable player after finishing as the
squad's leader in nearly every statistical category.
As a sophomore, Jefferson posted season averages of 12.0
points and 4.0 rebounds. He has been a member of the varsity team
since arriving as a freshman.
"Mike is the type of player who can break down the opposing
defense on a consistent basis, something we haven't had in recent
years," McCullum explained. "He sees the floor and shoots well and
is a big catch for us with the graduation of Robby Collum."
