Duke forward Amile Jefferson looks healthy in the latest highlight clip the program just released on Twitter.

In the short 20-second video, Jefferson takes a pass in the corner off a drive-and-kick from guard Luke Kennard. Freshman Javin DeLaurier was guarding Jefferson, but he had to help on the drive.

Jefferson recognizes he has a step, drives middle and throws down a slam on the unlucky frosh.

Jefferson doing that is a welcome sight for Blue Devil fans. His absence last season while dealing with a foot injury short-circuited any plans of a deep NCAA tourney run.

Duke will need Jefferson's experience and leadership in 2016-17, particularly with Harry Giles missing some time following knee surgery.
