D.J. Jefferson, the 6-foot-5 four-star small forward from Minnesota Prep Academy, has committed to Tennessee.
He also considered Wake Forest.
“I chose Tennessee to be beside Coach (Rick) Barnes,” Jefferson told On3.com. “He has a lot of accolades under his belt, and I want to make history with him, He’s coached a lot of big stars such as Kevin Durant, T.J. Ford, the list goes on. So I wanted to be a part of that legacy and be able to say, ‘I played for Coach Barnes at the University of Tennessee.”
He joins point guard BJ Edwards and five- star small forward Julian Phillips, who committed May 12. Class of 2023 New York City power forward Tobe Awaka has also committed for 2023 and could reclassify to 2022.
