Over recent years, Guyer has become a hot bed for college recruiters with numerous FBS signees coming out of the relatively young program over the last four years. There are a few who will be starring for the Wildcats this upcoming season, including offensive lineman Patrick Morris (TCU) and quarterback Jerrod Heard, who could end up being the nation’s top QB recruit in the Class of 2014.
Heard’s top target, senior-to-be Ellis Jefferson is starting to garner a lot of attention as he recently picked up an offer from Michigan State to add to his list that includes Colorado, Mississippi State and Purdue. Jefferson is a physical specimen at 6-4 and 190 pounds with good hands and great explosiveness. Last season, as the Wildcats’ No. 2 receiver, Jefferson picked up 676 yards with five touchdowns.
Today, he’s going to Oklahoma State’s camp and will hit up TCU’s on Thursday. Okie State, of course, has become a sort of Guyer North in recent years with J.W. Walsh, Josh Stewart and Jimmy Bean already in the program and Dominic Ramacher heading there in the fall to play as running back/H-back type, as he announced on Twitter on Tuesday.
It will be interesting to see what happens with Jefferson. If Oklahoma State were to offer him, you’d have to think he’d love the chance to go play with Ramacher and his more his more distant teammates Walsh and Stewart, who were seniors when Jefferson was a sophomore.
My hunch is that Jefferson will wait until the season begins to make his commitment, but if he gets the right offer this summer he might just jump on it.
