Cobras junior Corey Jeffs has returned to Kilsyth, signing with the Cobras for the 2021 NBL1 season.
A graduate of Winona State University – the same school that produced former Cobras imports Quincy Henderson, Zach Malvik and Taylor Cameron – Jeffs enjoyed a standout senior season with the Warriors, averaging 12.2 points and 5.1 rebounds while shooting 44 percent from beyond the arc. Jeffs’ 143 career three point makes at Winona are the 17th most in school history, while his 79.5 percent free throw percentage ranks fourth in school history. Prior to his time at Winona State, Jeffs helped lead the VYC Cobra Men to a 2013 state championship – a team that featured a number of current NBL1 Cobras.
Jeffs, who played his junior domestic basketball with the Mt Evelyn Meteors, gives the Cobras an elite perimeter shooting presence, while his athletic 6’7 frame will provide head coach Pete Godfrey with plenty of versatility on both ends of the floor.
“Corey is a player with loads of potential to have an impact at the NBL1 level,” Godfrey said.
“He’s a long athlete with deep range and a hard-nosed approach to his business, and will be one of a number of players that will enable us to space the floor.”
Jeffs joins Ben Ursich and Jorden Adnam on the wing, with all three possessing the ability to play multiple positions for Godfrey’s team. With a proven track record of lighting it up from deep and the ability to score off the bounce, Jeffs is set to give opposing defences fits in 2021 – and Cobra fans another exciting young player to watch.
