Jeffrey M’ba is a 6’6 286 DL who is originally from Gabon & Cameroon and is one of the most sought after prospect of the 2019 recruiting class. Jeffrey holds offers from Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan State, University of Michigan and Maryland and his school offer list is expected to continue to grow. Jeffrey moved to France when he was 4 years old and did start playing football until last year. After spending a week in Maryland coaches have been in awe of his athletic potential.
We had the chance to speak with Jeffrey for an interview.
EE: «How does it feel to have power five football offers and show college coaches that France has talented players like yourself ?
M’ba: «I’m very proud to have offers from top football programs. I started football one year ago and I’ve already come so far I can only be happy. I know players in France are watching me and supporting me. I hope other players will follow me and go to America to play football.»
EE: «How does it feel to represent France?»
M’ba: «I am very proud of my chance to represent my country because, I know that in difficult times it will give me the strength to continue to fight and never give up.»
EE: «Who has been helping to develop your football talents?»
M’ba: «I have been attending the Pole France (French Football Academy) so my coaches are sharpening my game. Being at the Pole is a great advantage to take my skills to the next level, but I really feel the difference thanks to the weight training. I have become more explosive and powerful.»
There is no doubt that only the sky is the limit for M’ba and whoever lands the Frenchmen will get lengthy athlete, who has a huge upside and with the proper coaching can turn into a college star.
