MotSaG Chat with Malik Jefferson

5star_recruit_iconThe Ohio State University is known as having some of the best linebackers in the country year in and year out. We have a huge hole to fill at linebacker and Urban is targeting a very talent linebacker named Malik Jefferson. Jefferson is by all accounts one of the top if not the best linebacker in the country. I had a chance to chat with the 6″3 215lb lb from Mesquite, Texas. Jefferson runs a 4.5 40 yard dash and is continuing to grow and has a chance to be a special player who could wind up in Columbus.
