The junior wide receiver for South Carolina has had a relatively quiet season, all things considered. Coming off a season in which he recorded 88 receptions for a total of 1,517 yards, Jeffery hasn’t come close to equaling his production from last year.
The thing is, it’s not his fault.
South Carolina lost starting quarterback Stephen Garcia when he was dismissed from the team for violating team rules and lost star running back Marcus Lattimore to injury in the seventh game of the season.
Without two major offensive components, it’s no wonder that Jeffery has seen his numbers drop this year.
This Saturday against Clemson, watch for Jeffery to make his presence felt in what could be his last collegiate home game. Only Jeffery knows for certain if he’ll forgo his senior season to enter the NFL draft next year, but most people are expecting him to make the leap to the pros.
On senior day in Columbia, keep your eyes on No. 1 for South Carolina—he might take this opportunity to leave his mark on the university for the last time at home.
