Arizona-bound Rondae Jefferson passes to himself off glass and dunks

It is indeed a Happy New Year for Arizona fans.

Not only are the Wildcats unbeaten and ranked third in the nation, their top recruit in the class of 2013 also gave them another reason to be excited for his arrival next fall.

During the second quarter of a Pennsylvania high school basketball game between Chester High and Imhotep Institute this past weekend, Arizona-bound Rondae Jefferson dribbles the length of the floor weaving through defenders, throws the ball off the glass to himself and slams it. The one-man fast break and self alley-oop finish drew a loud ovation from the crowd and earned Jefferson the No. 2 spot on SportsCenter's top plays Tuesday morning.

Jefferson, who had campaigned the past two days on Twitter for ESPN to air his dunk, shared his excitement when the network finally showed it.

"Espn y'all," Jefferson tweeted, "I made it!!!!!!"
