Summary:
Damien Jefferson is an athletic, energetic swingman that is having a solid senior season at Creighton.  He is playing on one of the best teams in college basketball.  Sometimes though, he may not always be assertive enough on offense, and he doesn’t always take enough jumpers in games.  Right now, he projects to be a borderline second round prospect for the 2021 draft.
