KJ Jefferson gets compared to Cam then throws an 85 yard strike on the next play. Good stuff

KJ Jefferson looks eerily similar to Cam… BUILD wise. Throwing motion is also very close. And he’s balling.

KJ Jefferson has a lot of Cam Newton in him. #Arkansas

In the first half against the stout Aggies defense, Jefferson threw for 202 yards, 2 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. He also ran 3 times for 18 yards.
We’ll see if he can lead the Hogs to the upset of the Aggies in the second half in a win that would surely make Newton proud.
