Sandusky senior WR/DB Tristen Jeffries has scholarship offers from Toledo and Ohio
University. What does he say about the two and will Jeffries soon
select a college?
Sandusky senior Tristen Jeffries is somewhat quietly
establishing himself as one of the top uncommitted defensive back
prospects in Northern Ohio.
The 6-foot-2 and 185-pound Jeffries was a varsity starter at the
beginning of his sophomore season. However, a fractured finger very
early in the season caused him to miss most of that first year.
Jeffries started at wide receiver his junior season and caught 32 passes with five touchdowns.
This season Jeffries is playing both wide receiver and cornerback.
He has 21 catches with five touchdowns as Sandusky is 5-1. Jeffries has
three interceptions on the other side of the ball and returned one for a
“Some schools like me for offense,” Jeffries said. “But more say defensive back. I like both – it doesn’t matter to me.”
Three schools have stepped forward with a scholarship offer to Jeffries.
“Youngstown State, Ohio and Toledo have offered,” Jeffries said.
“I’m looking at all three. I was looking at West Virginia too, but I
guess they filled up at my position. I’m looking at all three equally.”
Jeffries went on to talk about the two MAC schools on his list.
“I went to a 7-on-7 camp at Toledo,” Jeffries said. “I’ve actually
been to Toledo a lot. I like the schedule of games they play this year.
“I was supposed to go to the Ohio-Kent game but it was to cold. I’ll
try to get down to Ohio. I like the way they spread the field and
throw the ball.”
Jeffries has not ruled out official visits after the season, but his recruitment might not make it that far.
“I might decide in the next few weeks – before the end of the season,” he said.
