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.

  1. The Best thing about Rondae and the players that Coach Miller and Staff are recruiting is that these are good guys. Great Kids, good students, respectful, willing to work hard. That can be said of Solo Hill, Bunnies Johnson, Air-Gordon, and the current roster. Great write -up!!!

    Love the fact that Rondae knows we have a great team but it appears he’s working as hard as anyone in the country still. REALLY looking forward to a strong sophomore campaign from RHJ.

    I believe Rondae can emerge as a candidate for College Player of the Year even while playing for a school like Arizona where super stardom emanates from team solidarity rather than from one individual player.

    Everything that this kid speaks is the truth.
    Arizona will have the best starting five next season FACT.
    He wanted to come back to win a national title and we have are going to be frontrunners for the #1 overall seed in the NCAA tourney FACT.
    He wanted to be a lottery pick in the next NBA Draft definite FACT.

    At the rate this kid is buzzing around the nation after his performance in last year’s NCAA tourney and the preseason hype he is generating I would be shocked if he still at Arizona to see his junior season.
    Miller is beginning to pump them out.
    McDs All-Americans to Arizona to the NBA.
