Class of 2024 prospect Amari Jefferson has become a recruiting commodity in football and baseball, and he intends to play both sports at the collegiate level.
The Tennessee baseball commit has welcomed the uniqueness of dealing with the recruiting process in multiple sports.
“It’s been pretty smooth for the most part. I try to take it all in stride,” Jefferson told LifeWallet Sports. “I’m trying to express interest in playing both to the schools I am interested in.”
The 6-foot-1 wide receiver, who’s ranked as the No. 292 player in his recruiting cycle by the On3 Sports Industry Rankings, has fielded offers from top football programs like Alabama and Georgia. He has official visits scheduled for those schools in June.
Miami is another school that has pursued Jefferson. UM offered Jefferson in January and was included in his top 12 schools list, which was released on March 28.
Jefferson made an unofficial visit to Miami on the weekend of May 13.
“The visit was awesome,” Jefferson said. “I had fun getting to see campus and getting to know the staff.”
“[Miami] football has put a lot of effort into recruiting me. I am a priority for [head] coach [Mario] Cristobal and [wide receivers coach Kevin] Beard.”
As for his familiarity with UM’s baseball team, Jefferson said that he doesn’t “know much about Miami in baseball. If it works out, then I’ll get to meet those guys in the future. I do know that they have a strong tradition in baseball.”
