La’Darius Jefferson is a 3-star 2018 dual-threat quarterback commit to the Michigan State University football team. Jefferson is the 13th ranked player in the state of Michigan. This past season, at Muskegon High School, Jefferson led the Big Reds to a division 3 state title victory over Farmington Hills Harrison. Jefferson was also selected Mr. Football in the state of Michigan this season. The 3rd straight Michigan Mr. Football to commit to Michigan State.
Jefferson was gracious enough to sit down with Detroit Sports and Entertainment and talk about things via twitter as he gets ready to head to East Lansing this fast fall.
