Trae Jefferson, one of the more entertaining players to watch in the Class of 2015, announced that he had committed to Texas Southern on Tuesday afternoon via his personal Twitter account.
There’s no shortage of YouTube videos of the diminutive 5-foot-7 point guard. There’s this one from BallisLife that was uploaded last August and this one from last month of him torching defenders while wearing sweatpants.
Jefferson was once listed in the Rivals 150 and is still listed as a four-star recruit, according to the same recruiting service. Despite the ranking, he could only land offers from Atlantic 10, Conference USA, Horizon League and Big West programs, according to Rivals and ESPN, which rated him as a three-star prospect.
It’ll be interesting to track how Jefferson translates to the next level, but he should form an entertaining backcourt alongside rising junior guard Chris Thomas.
Texas Southern is coming off a 22-win season and reaching the NCAA tournament for the second consecutive season.
