Arizona Wildcat basketball stars Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Stanley Johnson are among the athletes invited to the LeBron James Skills Academy next week in Las Vegas. The camp invites the top student-athletes to showcase their skills in front of NBA scouts. ESPN's Jeff Goodman reported the news.
Hollis-Jefferson is arguably one of the most gifted athletes in the NCAA and is expected to take on a larger role for coach Sean Miller this fall. Hollis-Jefferson averaged 9.1 points and 5.7 rebounds per game this past season. He started in six of the 28 contests for the Wildcats.
Johnson is one of the top incoming freshmen in the country and is already an expected lottery pick. He will have big shoes to fill as Nick Johnson and Aaron Gordon left Tucson early for the NBA. The LeBron James Skills Academy runs July 9-12 in Las Vegas.
Johnson was also recently featured in a mini-documentary from the production crew at "Ball Is Life" an online publication dedicated to the sport of basketball. The documentary, titled "Work", shows Johnson's dedication and hard work that led to the star he has become today.
