Straight out of Edmond the Miami Heat may unearth another Josh Richardson this summer

The Miami Heat struck gold once with a Santa Fe High School graduate in Josh Richardson.

Perhaps lighting could strike twice when Edmond, Oklahoma native DaQuan Jeffries displays his talents as a late invite to the NBA Combine.

Jeffries built his reputation at Richardson’s alma mater for his outstanding performances on the defensive side of the floor.

“Jeffries played inside for the Wolves because of his size and strength, but showed the athletic ability and skills to transition into a shooting guard at the next level. He averaged 16 points and eight rebounds per game and was named the Defensive Player of the Year in the Central Oklahoma Athletic Conference.
