Jeffries lists two leaders

One of the top prospects in attendance at the recent Rutgers camp was Cedric Jeffries, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound wide receiver out of Egg Harbor Township N.J.

Cedric Jeffries, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound class of 2006 wide receiver prospect out of Egg Harbor Township in New Jersey, has that ideal tall and lean look that colleges love to go after. Indeed, Jeffries' ever-expanding offer list stands at nine written offers: Maryland, Vanderbilt, Rutgers, Wisconsin, Western Michigan, Minnesota, Purdue, Temple and Virginia.

Jeffries participated in the Greg Schiano football camp held at Rutgers University two weekends ago.

"I was there for four days," Jeffries said.

Did any of the players stand out?

"Yes," Jefferies said, "Tim Brown."

As it happens at nearly every camp, the speedster out of Northwestern High School in Miami, Fla., wowed onlookers with his ability to separate from defenders.

On Tuesday, a rising senior from St. Joseph Regional in Montvale, N.J., defensive back Terrence Klein, dropped by camp for one day. Did Jeffries have the chance to go up against Klein?

"I went against him once," Jeffries said. "I beat him to the spot then he recovered with good defense. The ball went out of bounds because it was an out."

Jeffries also mentioned going up against Demarcus Roberson, the standout cornerback out of Sunrise, Fla. (Piper High School).

"He got a good jam on me and then I got off of it and I caught a slant," Jeffries said.

Being from New Jersey, Jeffries is familiar with the Rutgers program and head coach Greg Schiano.

"He's [Greg Schiano] a cool person," Jeffries said. "He tells you everything straight up. He won't lie to you."

Defensive line coach Cary Godette is the Rutgers coach currently recruiting Jeffries.

"I like him a lot," Jeffries said. "If I played on the D-line I would definitely like to play for him."

While Jeffries states he is unsure when he would like to make a final decision regarding his college destination he currently has two schools that stand out in front: Wisconsin and Virginia.

"I went to Wisconsin two weeks ago," he said. "I like the campus, all the coaches there and the people there, and my parents like it too."

At the time of this interview Jeffries said that he was set to take an unofficial visit to Virginia over this past weekend.

What are some things that Jeffries will be taking into consideration when selecting a school?

"Academic support, the people there and when I decide on a major, if the school has my major or not," he said.

Jeffries said that his family and high school coach will have prominent roles in helping him choose his future college destination.
