Jeffries played for Penny Hardaway's Team Penny AAU program on the Nike EYBL circuit last spring and summer, averaging 11.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists despite playing up an age group. Jeffries is one of several ranked prospects connected to Hardaway, who has been mentioned as a potential Tubby Smith replacement at Memphis.
Jeffries is Kentucky's first commitment in the 2019 class, although the Wildcats are heavily involved with No. 1 prospect James Wiseman -- who played on the same AAU team as Jeffries.
