Quistors' Jeffries commits to Kentucky

When junior D.J. Jeffries came to the Marshall County Hoopfest, he said it was an "honor" to have Kentucky coach John Calipari make the trip to watch him play.

"They just won an SEC championship and have won the past couple of years and I want to be a part of that and hopefully win a national championship", Jeffries said.

"I tried to put on a good show for the fans", the 6-7 Jeffries said then. "They made a good connection with my family and that was a big thing with me, so that was where I wanted to go". He picked the Cats over Alabama and Mississippi State and is Calipari's first commitment in the 2019 recruiting class.

Calipari extended a scholarship offer to the Memphis-area standout during a visit in September, just the second offer to a 2019 recruit by the United Kingdom coach, who hosted Jeffries for Big Blue Madness a month later.

"It was a great experience".

"People in Kentucky, they love their basketball team".

Dear students, are you stressed out? Indulge in some dog therapy
The students were asked to fill out questionnaires immediately before and after the session, and again about 10 hours later. According to the researchers, therapy dog sessions are becoming more popular on university campuses in the west.

"When I was little I wanted to go to Memphis", Jeffries said.

He had about 20 other Division I offers including Florida, Mississippi, Maryland, Wichita State and Ohio State. I'd like to see him develop his back-to-the-basket game some more, and really fine-tune some post moves. He doesn't shoot it as much as I would like but he has a very nice shot.

Jeffries, a 6-7, 185lbs small forward, is ranked the No. 26 player nationally and No. 1 in MS for 2019 class by 247Sports.

Calipari's continuous presence - a rarity for a player who's just a junior in high school - shows how much the United Kingdom coach thinks of Jeffries, who scored 20 points in that state title game Saturday night and was named the tournament's most valuable player.

"I chose Kentucky because throughout this process they have been the most active", Jeffries told PrepCircuit.com.

Jeffries received an offer from the Cats on September 14, the same day that head coach John Calipari made his first of what would be four visits to the MS native. That is what made my decision.
