Description

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (born January 3, 1995) is an American basketball player for the Arizona Wildcats men's basketball team. He was marked as a potential selection in the 2014 NBA draft, but chose to continue his collegiate career because of the strong draft class consisting of Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker. Hollis-Jefferson is projected to be one of the top picks in the 2015 NBA draft. Hollis-Jefferson attended Chester High School in Chester, Pennsylvania, where he would begin an outstanding basketball career under head coach Larry Yarbray. The small forward became the first player to ever be named Delaware County Player of the Year for multiple seasons.[1] He was also instrumental in Chester's first-ever undefeated season. Hollis-Jefferson participated in the 2013 McDonald's All-American Game against future Arizona teammate, Aaron Gordon.[2] Following the event, he took part in the Jordan Brand Classic with some of the most highly-recruited high school stars in the nation such as Julius Randle.[3] At the conclusion of Hollis-Jefferson's years with the Clippers, he was tabbed the 6th best small forward of his class by 247Sports.com and the fifth best by Rivals.com. He eventually chose to attend the University of Arizona and represent the school through their successful basketball program over other possibilities such as Florida and Syracuse. In his freshman season with Arizona, Hollis-Jefferson became known as fierce scorer, rebounder, and shot-blocker despite his relatively small size. The start of his season was marked with 10 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists against Cal Poly as a non-starter. He posted his first double-double in a game against Oregon. Hollis-Jefferson started in just 6 of 38 games played due to the roster that was dominated by the likes of Aaron Gordon, but still got his name on the Pac-12 All-Freshman Team.[5] As a sophomore, he was voted first-team All-Pac-12, and was named to the Pac-12 All-Defensive Team.
