WATCH: Malik Jefferson and friends are getting some extra work in

Posted February 20th, 2017


Vince Young once sent his teammates a message before the 2005 National Championship season: “If you want to beat Ohio State, meet me here every night at 7 p.m.”

The message worked. Texas beat the Buckeyes in Columbus that fall and the rest is history.

It appears that Malik Jefferson may be trying to emulate that message.


Sort of.

The junior-to-be linebacker is, apparently, holding private workouts in East Austin in addition to Texas’ regular offseason workout sessions.

On Saturday a Twitter post circulated around showing Jefferson and teammates, including Kris Boyd, Eric Cuffee and Davante Davis, getting some extra time in.

It’s the second weekend in a row that Jefferson went to social media to show just how hard the linebacker is working this offseason.
