Pernell stars for Warren Easton High School in New Orleans, LA. He possesses great size at 6-2/235 and was a former teammate of Sooners class of 2015 linebacker Arthur McGinnis

Jefferson also had offers from ASU, Miami, Mizzou, Mississipi St., Nebraska, TCU, TTech, and Utah. He is a consensus 3 star recruit and the 10th member of the Sooners class of 2016. He joins Jon-Michael Terry and Bryce Youngquist as the third linebacker in the class of 2016. Look for the Sooners to land 2 additional linebackers before National Signing Day.

Here is a short clip of Jefferson in action.
