Arizona coach Sean Miller has signed the first two players of his 2012 recruiting class.
The school announced that forward Rondae Jefferson of Chester High School in Pennsylvania and guard Elliott Pitts of De LaSalle High School in Dublin, Calif., have signed national letters of intent.
Jefferson is a 6-foot-7 small forward who helped lead Chester to 58 straight wins, including consecutive state titles. He is expected to help fill the hole left when senior Solomon Hill graduates next year.
Pitts is a 6-5 guard who averaged 16 points for one of the nation's top high school programs as a junior.
Miller said he may still add one or two more players to the recruiting class.
