WATCH: Tennessee Signee DJ Jefferson Highlights

    by -

    Tennessee officially signed four-star wing DJ Jefferson from the 2022 class on Friday. The small forward from Richardson, Texas is a dynamic and athletic wing player that has a number of versatile traits on offense.

    The Minnesota Prep Academy player was originally a Tulsa commit before backing out of his NLI due to a coaching change within the program.

    Tennessee and head coach Rick Barnes were able to extend Jefferson a scholarship offer on May 2 before hosting him just a few weeks later, which led directly into his commitment on Friday.

    Standing at 6-foot-5, 190-pounds, the left-hander has a unique set of skills on the court. Jefferson has the ability to play perimeter basketball and has a knack for putting his head down and driving to the paint. In addition, Jefferson is smooth running in transition, both with the ball and receiving the pass.

    Check out some of the highlights for Tennessee’s newest signee, four-star DJ Jefferson, below.
