Jefferson was named all-state as a junior after racking up 113 tackles, 55 of those tackles were solo and he had 5 sacks.
Four-year varsity starter. Jefferson is the son of Kankakee head coach Ira Jefferson. Dustin is a very good athlete that has played defensive end and tight end for most of his high school career. He's being recruited as an athlete but projects as a linebacker or safety. Dustin had 113 tackles, 55 solo tackles and 5 sacks as a junior.
Coaches Comments: - Dustin is tremendously quick coming off the edge. He's had the advantage of being around the game his entire life because of me and he understands the game of football. I can play Dustin at any position on the field and I wouldn't get hurt. He's the best player I've ever coached. One college recruiter said that Dustin reminded him of Leonard Little - Kankakee coach Ira Jefferson.
He is getting hand written mail from most of his favorites(no tOSU). Jefferson visited Champaigne and Iowa City this weekend. He had agood time talking with the coaches at Iowa and Illinois. He will be attending Junior Days at Purdue and Northwestern in the upcoming weeks. He projects as an OLB, and has a 3.0 GPA.
