UK visited CeCe Jefferson at his high school outside Jacksonville, Florida this afternoon. Jefferson is the top defensive end in the 2015 class and the No. 5 overall player in the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Fresh off vacation, I’m already thinking about the next thing I can knock off my “to-do travel list,” or, for those of you who enjoy Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman movies, my “bucket list.
