Muskegon QB La'Darius Jefferson on pace to be first Central Florida signee out of Michigan in years

On this Sunday afternoon, Muskegon 2018 QB La'Darius Jefferson verbally committed to play quarterback at the University of Central Florida.  The AAC conference including Central Florida has begun to notice the vast talent in Michigan as offers have been coming in more frequently.  The offer and effort that UCF put in Muskegon, Michigan paid off big-time with Jefferson committing.  According to our data, no player out of Michigan has signed with Central Florida in at least 15 years!

So what makes Jefferson so appealing to UCF?   Well for starters he's a team player, he split reps with Virginia Tech-bound Kalil Pimpleton as a junior so neither had gaudy statistics.   Muskegon were the Division 3 runner-ups in 2016.  He has a cannon arm and great mobility.

Central Florida will definitely be getting one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks around.  As the 6'2" 200 pounder can run and hit like a linebacker which spells d-i-s-a-s-t-e-r for opponents.

Jefferson started out at Muskegon as a Freshman, left to Mississippi as a sophomore, and returned for his junior season. Jefferson will be there as a senior behind two phenomenal offensive tackles.

Jefferson had double-digit offers so it's barely surprising seeing a school like Central Florida who has had good success in recent years, land his commitment.

Central Florida in 2014 produced the #3 overall pick in the NFL draft, Blake Bortles.
