The playoffs are right around the corner for Mesquite (Texas) Poteet, and 2015 linebacker Malik Jefferson has established himself as a player to watch. No longer is he just the sophomore on the team.

A 6-foot-2, 212-pound outside linebacker, Jefferson has been important in Poteet’s run through the competition. The Pirates are 7-1 and in excellent position for a postseason berth. His play has recently attracted interest from Oklahoma.

“I was excited when I heard from them, then I was kind of surprised,” Jefferson said. “Poteet’s not a big school, and in the past we didn’t get a lot of interest like that. To get it from OU, it’s exciting.
