Prince Holloway, the 5-foot-9, 160-pound three-star wide receiver from Cape Coral, Fla., says he knows where he wants to go to college. In fact, he says he’s about 100-percent sure. So is Holloway committed? No.
“I know I want to go to Michigan,” Holloway said. “I’m probably about 100-percent sure.”
So why not pull the trigger and make it official? “I want to wait,” he said. “I haven’t visited them yet, so I’ll do that before I commit.”
Holloway is scheduled to visit the Wolverines on Jan. 15. “I’m really excited for that trip,” he said. “I’ve never been up there, but I know they have the best tradition in college football and I can’t wait.”
Although Holloway has never been to Michigan he says that distance won’t be a factor. “I’ve moved around a bit, so that doesn’t matter,” he said. “I lived in New York for a year too, so I’m used to cold weather.”
The Wolverines are recruiting Holloway the hardest and were the only school to visit him at home earlier this month.
“They know where they stand,” he said. “They know they’re number one and how I feel. I’m just not committed yet.”
Behind Michigan, Holloway lists West Virginia and Cincinnati as darkhorses, but says he’ll only visit the Wolverines officially. He claims to have scholarship offers from all three schools.
“I love their offense,” he said about Michigan. “Coach Rod (Rich Rodriguez) is trying to rebuild and is trying to get a lot of guys from Florida to go there and run his spread.
“I really like the spread because it’s how I like to play,” he said. “They do a lot of quick passes and make big plays. They said that I’m the only slot receiver they’re looking at.”
Holloway, ranked as the No. 132 wide receiver in the country by Scout.com, finished his senior season (10-2) with 1,028 yards receiving and 13 touchdowns. He also had around 500 yards rushing and three touchdowns.
One thing that might be holding Holloway back a bit is his academics. He says he has a 2.8 core GPA and a 16 ACT and 740 SAT. He retook the ACT on Dec. 4 and is still waiting on his results.
