DJ Jeffries Is Coming To Kentucky

Five-star junior D.J.

DJ Jeffries, a junior from Olive Branch, Mississippi, announced his commitment to United Kingdom on Monday.

Monday afternoon, Jeffries made public his decision to trade those colors in for Kentucky Blue and White as he committed to play for the Wildcats and coach John Calipari. Jeffries unofficially visited United Kingdom on October 13, 2017, to attend Big Blue Madness along with Zion Williamson, Bol Bol and Immanuel Quickley.

The 247Sports composite rankings have Jeffries pegged as the No. 26 overall prospect in the class of 2019. "They (UK fans) might see me in a couple of years".

Calipari, in particular, had been especially active in recruiting Jeffries.

Jeffries is close friends with fellow 2019 United Kingdom target James Wiseman, who could reclassify to the 2018 class. Jeffries chose Kentucky over Alabama, and Mississippi State. "They are good at developing kids to be out in one year and that's what I plan to do". He helped Olive Branch win the Class 5A state title last week and had 20 points, and five rebounds in the title game after having 20 points, five rebounds and five blocks in the semifinals when Calipari was at the game. "But, obviously, when you have that type of versatility and ability to play inside and out, it's promising". "They have come to visit me and have made me feel like a priority. My family wants me to finish, so I promised them that".

Jeffries was also offered a scholarship by Kansas, Texas A&M and Memphis, among others.

Jeffries played for Penny Hardaway's Team Penny AAU program on the Nike EYBL circuit last spring and summer, averaging 11.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists despite playing up an age group.

"I tried to put on a good show for the fans", the 6-7 Jeffries said then. "If Coach Hardaway gets the job, it's something I would consider, but for right now I'm all in for Kentucky".

"When I was little I wanted to go to Memphis", Jeffries said. "I was trying to enjoy the process but after the state championship game I thought I might as well just go ahead and commit and get all the stress over with".
