Football welcomes talented wide receiver

The Vanderbilt football program received good news today as it announced that former UConn wide receiver Terence Jeffers will join the Commodores this fall.

Fans will have to wait a year to see him on the gridiron, but Jeffers will have two years of eligibility remaining and should be able to make an immediate impact in 2009 with the departure of senior wide receivers George Smith and Sean Walker.

Jeffers, who graduated from Berkmar High School outside of Atlanta, Ga., arrives in Nashville with impressive credentials. He started 21 of 25 games in two years with Huskies, leading the team with 44 catches for 582 yards and five touchdowns in 2007. As a freshman, he caught 17 passes for 200 yards and two touchdowns.
