Transfer U brings in Another.
UNM Transfer Damien Jefferson Joins the Jays.
Creighton has overtaken Iowa State as “Transfer University”. The Jays have reeled off a string of incoming transfers that began with Louisville’s Chad Millard a few years back and has culminated with Syracuse’s Kaleb Joseph & Adelphi’s Manny Suarez, both who begin play next season. Coach Mac has skillfully negotiated the transfer market and has reaped the benefits of selective accessions to the team. While not enumerating the entire list, it is sufficient to say that the staff have skillfully added to the Bluejays’ successes via transfers.
The latest accession came out of the Blue and was a complete surprise to the vast majority of us in Jaysdom. New Mexico Lobo Damien Jefferson has committed to the Jays on the 24th of June, after the gates opened at UNM upon a coaching change.
Damien is from E. Chicago, Indiana and is a SG/SF player. He stands 6-5/190 and started 6 games at UNM, scoring 5.3 ppg as a frosh. Damien was a 2016 Rivals 150 3-star out of HS and is known for his athleticism, growing defensive prowess, and hustle. He will sit 1/play 3.
The Jays are still in on the UMass duo so we may not be done in the transfer market.
Furthermore the 2018 visit cycle is gearing up as Ian Steere, Chris Bishop/Yor Anei , Marcus Zegarowski, Xavier Foster, & Jeff McInniss have all visited in the last week or 2. Boston (Cambridge), MA 2018 center Dimon Carrigan (defensive monster and shot blocker) is on deck for an official visit soon.
LE: former Jay SF/PF Cole Huff will play in the 2017 NBA Summer League for the Toronto Raptors. If he plays as he should he will make the club, and potentially give CU 5 men in the NBA.
Good luck and go git’em Cole.
