Jefferson can step right into the lineup after the departures of Kevin Parrom, Mark Lyons and Solomon Hill at the end of the 2012-2013 season.

Rondae Jefferson, a five-star recruit from Pennsylvania, committed to Sean Miller and the Arizona Wildcats during an in-home visit on Thursday, according to CBS Sports.

Jefferson is ranked No. 16 in the 2013 class and the Wildcats beat out Florida, Rutgers, Texas, Temple, Syracuse and Memphis for Jefferson's signature. Jefferson's signing followed an official visit to campus last weekend.

A 6'6 small forward, Jefferson is a major coup for the Wildcats as a lefty who can handle the ball like a point guard and plays both ends of the floor. With what is becoming a loaded Wildcats team, having someone like Jefferson who can makes those around him better will be a welcome sight for Wildcats fans.

Jefferson joins guard Elliott Pitts as the first two to commit to the Wildcats from the class of 2013.
