St. Thomas Aquinas’ junior Tristian Jeffries has received an offer from Division-1 Robert Morris University Men’s basketball program (PA).
The 6-foot-6 guard also has standing offers from Manhattan, Stony Brook, Bryant University, and Columbia.
Although Jefferis missed the first 13 games of the 2019-20 high school basketball season, he managed to score 204 points, grabbed 97 rebounds, dish out 45 assists, and make 39 steals in 15 contests. The Jersey City, N.J., native averaged 13.6 ppg.
Jefferies played basketball at Gill St. Bernard’s last season and high school insiders considered him as one of the best slashers in New Jersey.
He scored 90 points and pulled down 39 boards as a sophomore.
Jefferies plays AAU hoops for the renowned NY Jayhawks program.
Additionally, Andrew Metz, Jayhawks’ Program Director and 17U Coach, offered up high praise for him on Twiter: “Tristian is a super-strong, physical athlete…can score inside and out, can have a major impact on the game on both ends of the floor. Whenever the world opens back up again, he’ll be ready to show the works.”
The Colonials finished with a 20-14 overall record and a 13-5 mark in the Northeast Conference (NEC).
