DURHAM -- Star high school forward Amile Jefferson has signed with Duke.

School officials said Tuesday night that Jefferson signed his letter of intent to play for the Blue Devils this fall.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski says Jefferson is "a perfect young man for Duke University."

Jefferson is a 6-foot-7, 190-pound power forward who averaged 19.9 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.7 steals as a senior for Friends' Central School in Philadelphia. He was named a McDonald's All-America and was rated as one of the nation's top prep big men.

He joins a Duke frontcourt that returns seniors Mason Plumlee and Ryan Kelly.
