CeCe Jefferson’s father has finally given in to his son’s wishes and has co-signed CeCe’s Letter of Intent to play football at the University of Florida.
The 5-star defensive end verbally committed to Florida on National Signing Day last week but didn’t send in his signed letter of intent until today. The delay was due to Cece’s father’s refusal to co-sign the letter. The NCAA requires every student-athlete to get the co-signature of a parent or guardian to legitimize the player’s letter of intent. The reason for the Jeffersons’ delay in signing the letter was the departure of Florida defensive line coach Terrell Williams. Williams left the coaching staff after accepting a position with the Miami Dolphins.
CeCe Jefferson announced via Twitter earlier today that he would be sending in his letter of intent “shortly” and, about an hour and a half later, Florida head football coach Jim McElwain confirmed on Twitter that he had received the signed letter.
