Jeffers was a long snapper at Kansas from 2012 to 2014. He is a native of Mishawaka, Indiana.
The specific role for Jeffers was not included in Feldman’s report. At Florida Atlantic, he served as a graduate assistant and helped with the offensive line.
Ohio State is coming off a 7-1 season in 2020, reaching the national championship. The Buckeyes will be entering Year 3 under Ryan Day when the 2021 season kicks off.
