4-star wide receiver Van Jefferson decommitted from Georgia today.
Rated the No. 3 wide receiver out of Tennessee, and the No. 11 wide receiver in the country for 2015, the 6’2″ wideout has reopened his options following an official visit to Oklahoma over the weekend, and a visit from head coach Bob Stoops on Monday.
Jefferson, the son of former NFL wide receiver and current Tennessee Titans receivers coach Shawn Jefferson, concluded his senior season with 67 catches for 1,223 yards and 13 touchdowns, helping lead the Class 6A runner-up Raptors to a 14-1 record.
Jefferson was also a 2015 U.S. Army All-American Bowl selection.
He totaled 87 receptions for 1,251 yards and 14 touchdowns for Ravenwood as a junior in 2013.
According to 24/7, Oklahoma is in the lead to sign the wide receiver and with only two weeks remaining until National Signing Day, it looks like Jefferson will be heading to Norman this fall.
“(Oklahoma) is in the mix,” Jefferson said. “I took a visit there and it was real nice, and I’m going to Ole Miss this weekend. I can’t wait for that one.”
Jefferson could be a good fit for the Sooners, mixing in well with Sterling Shepard and Durron Neal. Plus, Trevor Knight (if healthy) could be looking to Jefferson frequently in 2015.
He has the size and the physical dimensions to compete right away. Stoops hasn’t had as much luck with receivers as his in-state counterpart Mike Gundy (OSU recently produced Justin Blackmon and Dez Bryant).
Nothing is set in stone as Jefferson said with Oklahoma and Ole Miss appearing to be the leading candidates right now with Georgia still in the mix. This could be a National Signing Day decision down the line. Stay tuned.
