Just came across this, courtesy Kyle Ringo/Scout. The Buffs have a (very) late addition to the 2009 recruiting class. Under the better late than never category, the newest addition to the CU wideouts is Will Jefferson of Vista del Lago HS in Moreno Valley, CA. A 6' 195 lb all purpose player who gained 2400 yards as a WR/RB/KR last year. Best deal is he is a full qualifier which means he should be available this year and ready to roll into Fall camp. Irish/ Woodrow you guys got anything more on this kid? He should be good to go right?

One has to wonder if everything is okay with Andre Simmons or is this just an opportunity to grab more depth at receiver. There is not a lot, in fact really anything substantial on the net regarding Jefferson. In fact, rivals.com doesn't even have a profile for him but he has shown some production with 2,400 yards all purpose as an athlete so he might be able to give us some of that Josh Smith game we are going to be without in 2009. Here is all that scout.com has on him:
First team All-Inland Valley League as a senior at wide receiver. He amassed approximately 2,400 all-purpose yards as a wide receiver, running back and kick returner during his second season. He played in the Southern California Fiesta Bowl following his senior year. Complications with his academic records led to him being lightly recruited. He is a full qualifier.
We will get more on Jefferson soon - irish
Here is a statistical breakdown of Jefferson on MaxPreps from last season. Good production as both a running back and a wide receiver.
