For the 10th consecutive season, a Jefferson brother will be a member of the LSU football team.
Earlier this month, Justin Jefferson revealed via Twitter that he had signed his papers to officially become a member of the Tigers. Less than a week later, LSU announced that the 2017 recruit has officially joined the team.
Jefferson had been expected to sign with the Tigers this past February, but that didn’t happen as he had some academic issues to work through.
The wide receiver is the younger brother of former LSU quarterback Jordan Jefferson (2008-11) and former LSU safety Rickey Jefferson (2012-2016, pictured).
Jefferson is a three-star 2017 recruit who was rated as the No. 76 player at any position in the state of Louisiana. According to 247Sports.com, his only other FBS offer was from in-state Tulane.
It’s not expected that the younger Jefferson will see much if any action in 2017.
