Two Peas In a Pod! Starring Aaron Harrison and Andrew Harrison of Houston Defenders At 2012 Reebok Showdown - Will They Go To Kentucky Or Maryland?



Aaron Harrison and Andrew Harrison displays their talents at this summer's Reebok's event. One is the passer and the other is the scorer. Will they go to Kentucky or Maryland? You don't get one player. You get two! Half the recruiting work. College coaches' dream. Who knows maybe Larry Brown has a wildcard in his pocket to bring them over to SMU.

Is Rondae Jefferson of Chester High School, University of Arizona Wildcats Bound a Rapper, Actor, or Baller? (Video Highlights)



At The Basketball Diary we don't talk a lot. We let the players do the talking. By that it means the tape don't lie. You are what you are. As we continue to move up on the food chain there are a few players that stands out from the rest based not entirely on their basketball pedigree but who they are. 

Today we take a look at Rondae Jefferson from Chester High School. One of the top guards in the Estados Unidos who recently committed to play under Sean Miller at University of Arizona. The next great player at Point Guard U.? Above is a highlight video of a few games from this year. The video will do the the explaining. Rebounds and passing are great. Jumper needs some fine tuning however free throws looks good. 

Now comes character part. This boy is funny. Never had a chance to speak with him. Judging from body language at the games and videos he has recently made over the summer has got to crack you up. Which is why we feel if his basketball career takes a pause he can always go in to acting or rapping. 

The first video below is a remake of the Michael Jordan and Mars Blackmon shoe commercial for the Air Jordans series. When do you ever see a top 20 kid make a video like this? The second one is an interview from 5 Stars Basketball. The interviewer manage to persuade Rondae to spit a few bars at the end of the video. Ricky Rozay better sign him soon MMG.
