Rubio said that "Jeff was smooth as silk and possessed a very strong snap. Ball just appears in your hands. He has a thick body and is very solid overall. Spiral is extremely tight and easy to catch. He came to the TOP 12 camp and did beyond well. I was expecting a lot from him and he even exceeded my expectations. Ball is very strong yet still smooth. Moves well for his size and his ball pops to you. Hard worker with a very solid personality. OFFER NOW!!!"
