David Rogahn and Dave Keefer from recognize Ajon Efferson as a top (class of 2014) player in the region. Efferson who's 6 ft. resides in Altadena, California where the population was 42,610 at the 2000 census. It's about 14 miles from the downtown Los Angeles Civic Center. In 2009, I saw Efferson play at the Adidas Phenom Jr. National Camp in San Diego, California. Efferson was rank top point guard at the camp. Ajons father, Dante Clark is very supportive of his son and actively involved in grassroots youth basketball. We might see Efferson at the Adidas Phenom 150 this June 2010.

At the 2010 Fullcourt Press Spring Showcase, held May 16th at Lawndale high school Ajon was ranked 2nd behind Marsalis Johnson. Also, Efferson was selected to play in the freshmen division and came out top player as a 8th grader.

"Big guys Marsalis Johnson and Bryan Alberts battled each other almost evenly while there were also some super guard work displayed by Ajon Efferson, Tide Osifeso, and Elijan Woods, who asserted himself in the second half. Ajon Jefferson may be one of the top 8th graders in the SoCal region and he saved his best for the freshmen game, barely beating Darien Williams (Katella) to land on top of the ratings. Deon Evans (Lawndale), Devon Pflueger (JSerra), Nick Colletta (La Verne Lutheran), and Jay Miller (La Verne Lutheran) also had strong showings".
