Jeremiah Jefferson Commits to Weber State

Weber State is a little thin at PG, but they helped that out with the commitment of 2014 combo guard Jeremiah Jefferson. Near as I can tell, this was first reported by Texas Hoops:

On their website, they wrote, "Jeremiah Jefferson went on his visit to Ogden, Utah and saw first hand the player development from the coaching staff on the Weber State Wildcats. Jefferson liked the prospect of going to play for coach Randy Rahe in hopes of becoming an impact player."

From all accounts, he is an impact player, and has a chance to step in and start immediately. From Future 150:

Jeremiah has a jump shot that is a thing of beauty. Not only does he possess good mechanics on his shot, but he is the owner of an off-the-dribble shot that is deadly. He gets great lift with his legs making him nearly unblockable, and has an extremely quick release. Also a high energy player who is skilled at finishing with either hand at the basket on aggressive drives.

Needs to get stronger. Must use his quickness to and craftiness with the ball to make his teammates better. Needs to add double moves off the bounce and improve his mid range game. Must improve his on ball defense and desire to play defense.

College Projections:
High Major
According to another site I found, Jefferson was the Triple A Academy POY as a junior, averaging 20 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists per game. He can score in bunches, and should be able to impact the game immediately upon his arrival.

According to a source, Jefferson has the chance to be really special. With him and Jeremy Senglin, the Wildcats have their backcourt pretty well set for the next few seasons.
