Five-star has interest in Arizona

Five-star forward Rondae Jefferson is starting to get interest from Arizona. Read on for his thoughts, what he feels he can add to a team, and more.

Arizona has entered the Rondae Jefferson sweepstakes and after his performance at this past weekend's EYBL in Oakland, it seems like a no-brainer.

The 6-foot-6, 185-pound Chester (Penn.) forward showed an ability to impact the game in numerous ways, as he continued his impressive play.

"EYBL has been going pretty good," Jefferson said. "My mindset going into the game is that I am better than everybody on the court no matter who you are. I try to apply that mindset to everything I do on the court and my overall confidence."

It is that mindset that has seen his recruiting attention increase, although Jefferson was not able to name the majority of schools recruiting him.

"Recruiting is going pretty good right now," he said. "I am hearing from a lot of schools, but they mostly talk to my mom so I can focus on everything."

One of the schools that Jefferson knows is recruiting him is Arizona and while he is still learning about the program, there are two players that come to mind.

"I know I have heard from Arizona," Jefferson said. "I know Derrick Williams and Andre Iguodala went there. They have a great coach and the overall program is great."

As Jefferson goes through the process, he has a pretty good idea of what he will be looking for in a school.

"I want a school that plays a style that fits my game," he said. "I want a coaching staff that will help me get to the next level with a great environment and a winning program."

In terms of what his game is, Jefferson is quick to point to his versatility on the court.

"I see myself as a point forward type," he said. "I like to get my teammates the ball first and then let everything else come to me. It is hard for a player to succeed when his teammates aren't doing well either."
