CeCe Jefferson hasn't faxed his letter to Florida. Is Ole Miss still in it?

The Florida commit never sent his LOI to Florida.

During a live televised National Signing Day event, CeCe Jefferson, a five-star defensive end from Glen Saint Mary, Florida, committed to the hometown Florida Gators over Ole Miss, Alabama, and Auburn.

However, he is yet to sign with Florida. His commitment, per ESPN, is now "on hold." Per CeCe's father Leo:

No, we are not sending it yet...CeCe is still thinking about it. He wants time to think about it....We don't have a timetable. CeCe could change his mind about everything.

This is good news - or, at the very least, it's not bad news - for Ole Miss football fans, who were hopeful that CeCe would ink with the Rebels yesterday. Jefferson took an unofficial visit to Oxford two weeks ago and had named Ole Miss as one of his leaders several times over the past few months.

Listed at 6'3" and 250 pounds, Jefferson has the size and skill to contribute right away as a freshman and boasts scholarship offers from more-or-less the entire Southeastern Conference.
