Cequan Jefferson is a talented athlete with the physical potential to play very early on in his Virginia Tech career.  As his Henrico High School (VA) career winds down, though, the main focus is not preparing himself physically for his freshman year in Blacksburg.  Instead, the focus is on classroom work and trying to gain admission to the school he signed a letter of intent with in February of 2013.

“They are still trying to get him in this summer,” Brookes said.  “Shane Beamer came by here last Friday and he still thinks Cequan can make it.  We’re hoping that’s the case.  We’re not giving in to the secondary choice just yet.”

Jefferson verbally committed to Virginia Tech in February of his junior year, just weeks after Signing Day for the class of 2012.  While he demonstrated big-play ability as a wide receiver in his high school career (he averaged 26.3 yards per catch his junior and senior seasons, totaling 1,317 yards receiving
