Boaz Says

“Carolina Football will do some really good things in the years to come. They are assembling the right pieces and will create consistency and a winning culture. Coach Brown and his staff have won before (at different places) and will do it again at UNC.”

Mack Brown Says

"He played great at quarterback this year and we will give him a chance to play quarterback. We also said if it didn't work out for him at quarterback that he could be a great NFL tight end like Deems May. We will look at him for both. He can really run for his size."

Deana Says

“Jefferson is a tremendous athlete for his size. He could play so many positions with his agility and versatility. He is an all-around great kid that will do well for Carolina.”
