One of the top players in the class of 2012 is Amile Jefferson of Philadelphia, PA, Friends Central High School. Jefferson stands 6-6 and weighs in around 190 pounds. Jefferson’s versatility and upside has college coaches jockeying for position as he starts to take a serious look at the process. In a our conversation, Jefferson said he adheres to a constant work ethic in order to make his game better. He was happy with his teams high school season and ready to continue his hard work. Jefferson said he would once again play for Team Philly on the AAU circuit. At this time, Jefferson really doesn’t have a true position but he played the power forward slot for his high school team. Jefferson is a bit of a tweener right now, but he is still growing and should fill out in the coming years. Despite what some consider to be a slight frame, Jefferson is not a kid who backs down and one analyst said he is lean but stronger than he looks.
Suppose somebody has yet to see you play. How would you describe your game?
I would probably describe my game as still coming along, but skillful and versatile. I play a lot with my back to the basket but I’m starting to face up.
