BIOGRAPHY: A key contributor to the Trojans team that reached the second round of the NCAA tournament, Jefferson joins fellow freshman teammate O.J. Mayo as a candidate for the draft. A borderline first-round pick, Jefferson made the risky decision to sign with an agent and exhaust his eligibility with the Trojans. He was a strong power forward at USC and averaged 12.1 points and 6.3 rebounds while starting 25 of 29 games, earning all-Pac 10 first-team freshman honors. He's a very athletic player with long arms and has a good inside-outside game up to 15 feet, but it will be extending that range to the 3-point line - where he went 4-for-8 this season - that will determine his NBA success. At 215 pounds, he likely will need to add about 10-15 pounds to be a legitimate power forward, but does have the good footwork and fundamentals that will be a strong starting base for a team drafting him. Jefferson struggled at times with his focus defensively and must improve his ball-handling skills after committing 2.4 turnovers per game.
