Cleveland Glenville wide receiver Kyle Jefferson (6-foot-5, 195 pounds, 4.5 seconds) is one of the top players in Ohio for 2007. Jefferson, who has racked up fourteen scholarship offers so far, has had a busy summer. The Glenville standout has visited nearly a dozen schools and Marshall was one of his stops.
