Amile Jefferson spoke to Adam Zagoria from the Boost Mobile Elite 24 Game about the recruiting process.

“I think Mitch [McGary] is involved with Maryland,” Jefferson said, referring to one of the six schools on McGary’s list. “And I have had Maryland say, ‘Tell him that I said hi’ or something like that. And they will give him a call and Mitch will be like, ‘What’s up [to Jefferson]?’
