Sean Miller continues to bring 5-star talent to Tucson with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. Hollis-Jefferson is the fifth-best small forward and the 16th overall player in the 2013 class. The 6'7" wing will be playing in both the McDonald's All-American Game and the Jordan Classic.
There is a lot to like about Hollis-Jefferson. He is big for his position at 6'7'' and has a 7'0'' wingspan. With that length, he is a tenacious defender who plays with great anticipation and a very high motor.
He can defend several different positions, and as he builds his strength in Arizona's weight-training program, he might be able to play all five slots. Because of his defensive prowess, he is a quintessential Sean Miller guy.
On the offensive end, he does a bit of everything. He looks most comfortable mid-range but can knock down the three as well as post up some. He can handle the ball well, and is a good passer and a great athlete. He is very similar to Solomon Hill in that he will be able to play so many roles on the offensive end.
This play, which ended up as SportsCenter's No. 2 on the top 10 plays list, shows off some of his skills.
Jefferson's strongest attribute may be his ability to win. In Pennsylvania's ultra-competetive AAAA, Jefferson has won two straight state championships, including a 32-0 campaign last season. This season, his team is 20-3 and is ranked 21st in the nation. He just knows what it takes to get victories.
His weaknesses are pretty much all things that will improve as he matures. He is not a consistent shooter. This has a lot to do with his shot mechanics, which aren't perfect at this point.
He also has a thin build at this stage, but Miller's staff does an incredible job with creating a solid frame. And lastly, he is very left hand-dominant in both getting to the basket and finishing at the rim.
Overall, there are not many holes in Jefferson's game and he is a huge get for Miller and the Wildcats.
