Arizona sophomore Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was at the LeBron James Skills Academy in Las Vegas, NV to work on his game with NBA level coaches and instructors. PGU caught up with RHJ to discuss what next season has in store.
“We have the best starting 5 in the country without a doubt,” he told PGU.
Hollis-Jefferson is in great shape and has had a busy summer. He’s been in Philly, Tucson, New Jersey, DC, as well as Las Vegas.
He’s been very impressed by incoming freshman Parker Jackson-Cartwright, a game-managing point guard from Los Angeles. Most of the team won’t arrive on campus until next week but he’s been impressed by PJC so far.
When asked why he came back for his sophomore season, he mentioned a national championship and his desire to become a lottery pick.
Hollis-Jefferson was also at the Kevin Durant Skills Academy in Washington DC recently. When asked about guarding Kevin Durant last week he said, “Nobody can guard that guy. At first I did a good job but then he turned it up.”
The sophomore also mentioned that Brandon Ashley is working out with the team.
Hollis-Jefferson said he loves the core they have built and that he expects to be a big part of the team next year.
“At Arizona, Miller just gives me the ball and within the flow of an offense is when I do my best,” he said.
