College basketball recruiting: 4-star forward D.J. Jeffries commits to Kentucky
Jeffries is the first Class of 2019 commitment for John Calipari's Wildcats
Jeffries, a 6-foot-7 small forward from Olive Branch, Mississippi, is a four-star prospect rated by 247Sports as the No. 26 overall player in the 2019 class. He is the first pledge for Kentucky in the Class of 2019.
The commitment gives coach John Calipari a sturdy base on which to build his recruiting class, and history suggests more blue-chippers will follow suit.
Kentucky's 2018 recruiting class currently ranks sixth nationally by 247Sports, however, the Wildcats have ranked no lower than second nationally since 2008.
