D.J. Jeffries is an athletic, energetic swingman that could project to be a 3 and D type of role player in the NBA. He can effectively knock down mid-range jumpers and spot-up threes off the catch, and he also thrives at scoring off cuts, as he can also finish numerous plays above the rim. He will need to improve his passing and ball handling ability, but he is a solid prospect that could be due for a big year as a sophomore in college basketball.
