On Tuesday, the Penn State football team offered a scholarship to a seemingly unlikely candidate. Amari Jefferson, a Tennessee Volunteer baseball commit, is the newest recipient of an offer from Penn State recruiting. Funny enough, Jefferson also happens to be drawing quite a bit of attention as a football prospect as well.

On June 21st of 2021, Amari Jefferson of Baylor School in Chattanooga, TN announced his commitment to play baseball at the University of Tennessee. Two years later, as football offers start to pour in, Jefferson still might be headed elsewhere.

According to On3, Amari Jefferson is a four-stare wide receiver, and is ranked as the No. 263 player in the nation, the No. 43 wide receiver in his class, and the No. 4 player in Tennessee. So far, Jefferson’s commitment looks to be all SEC through and through — most of his offers come from down south, and the top-four favorites to land his commitment all reside in the SEC.

Georgia is currently the favorite to land this 6-1, 190 pound 2024 receiver, though Alabama, Tennessee, and Kentucky all are hot on the trail as well. On Tuesday, James Franklin’s staff threw their hat into the ring as well by officially offering Jefferson a scholarship to play at Penn State University.
