Jeffery said Thursday he will enter the NFL draft this spring. He set the school record with 3,042 yards receiving over three seasons. He had 49 catches for 762 yards and eight touchdowns this season, capping the year as the Capital One Bowl MVP in the Gamecocks' 30-13 win over Nebraska.
Jeffery had four catches for 148 yards against the Cornhuskers, including a 51-yard Hail Mary touchdown grab right before halftime. Jeffery was ejected from the game in the second half for fighting.
His best year came in 2010 when he set single-season marks at South Carolina with 88 catches and 1,517 yards.
