Florida WR down to Boise State, UCF

Jefferson 140612 1
Class of 2015 receiver Bryan Jefferson of Leesburg (Fla.) said of his more than a dozen offers, two schools stand out the most - Boise State and UCF.
"With Boise State, I like the coaching staff," the 6-foot, 180-pound Jefferson said. "They seem very interested in me. UCF, the same thing. They're both great programs and they both have a lot to offer."
Jefferson said he'll make the 2,600-mile trip sometime this month for an unofficial visit.
"I just want to get out there and see the campus and hang out with the coaches," Jefferson said.
What excites Jefferson most about the Broncos is their sustained success and how he could fit in their up-tempo offense.
"They spread the ball around, they pass the ball and Boise State has a huge winning tradition," he said.
As for UCF, while the Knights don't have the winning tradition, Jefferson noted he thinks the program is "on the rise" and likes that it's much closer to home.
"My parents will be able to come to my games," said Jefferson. "My dad's a huge supporter in my family, so that will play into it."
Jefferson has already visited UCF with the coaches giving him a tour of the campus and facilities. He had already been offered at that point, so he spent time getting to know the coaching staff better.
While Boise State and UCF are the two leaders, he's leaving the door open for Iowa State and Oregon State.
"They're two programs that spread the ball around a lot," he said. "So that's what drew me to them."
