Top basketball recruit Jeffries decomits from Kentucky and reopens his recruitment
ESPN ranks Jeffries as a five-star recruit and the No. 19 player in his class, while 247Sports gives him four stars and ranks him 37th.
"After careful consideration prayer and countless hours of consulting with my family I decided to reopen recruitment," Jeffries wrote. "It was a hard decision but I am confident that taking my time to choose the right school for me to better myself educationally and athletically is the right choice."
There were rumours that Jeffries might change his mind and join Memphis after Penny Hardaway -- who was Jeffries' AAU coach last spring and summer -- was hired as the Tigers' new head coach on March 20.
With Jeffries' change of heart, the Wildcats have just one player, consensus top-10 guard Tyrese Maxey, committed in the 2019 class.
