Player Bio

Rondae Jaquan Hollis-Jefferson was born in Chester, Pennsylvania in 1995. Raised by his grandfather and mother, Rylanda, Hollis-Jefferson and his brother Rahlir were serious about basketball from an early age. Rahlir currently (Jan. 2020) plays for the G League's Memphis Hustle, and spent his college career at Temple University. Rondae's story is different. He led his Chester High School basketball team to a 91-5 record over his final three years there, winning two state championships and becoming the first player ever to be named the Delaware County player of the year in multiple seasons. As a senior, he averaged 15.5 points, 11.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 2.8 steals and 2.4 blocks per game and was named Pennsylvania's 4A Player of the Year. By the time Hollis-Jefferson finished his high school career and committed to play for Arizona, he'd recorded over 1,000 high school points and a school record 780 career rebounds. Hollis-Jefferson comes back to Chester often to host basketball camps or to watch his high school team play. In late 2019, RHJ announced that he had applied to launch his C.H.A.P. charter school in the fall of 2020. The premise is similar to the I Promise School endowed by LeBron James: it's about opportunity, an investment in young people, in the city.
