Eric Gordon once dominated the ranks of high school hoops. Now he is in the NBA but his name lives on in grassroots basketball. Gordon and company assembled a team named after the Los Angeles Clipper and Indiana University standout. One player who stands out on the team is 6-foot-6 small forward Jeremy Hollowell. Hollowell, a part of the class of 2012, plays for the Eric Gordon U16 squad. Not only is he a big time player in the making, but he is extremely versatile, as well.
The forward describes his game by saying, “I can mix it up inside or outside, however my defender plays me.” Holloway went on to say, “I can post up and take people off the dribble.” In order to take his game to the next level, the rising junior says he “needs to work on getting quicker and stronger, as well as becoming more aggressive.” With a very competitive class, Jeremy is already standing out among the many.
Through his outstanding play and loads of potential, Holloway has attracted plenty of colleges’ attention. He already has offers from Ohio State, Indiana, Tennessee, Illinois, Xavier, Cincinnati, Iowa and Indiana State. With coaches being allowed to contact and officially offer sophomores, Jeremy believes that “Michigan, Florida and Louisville” will offer him in the near future. Despite being from Indiana, he insists he is keeping his recruitment open to everyone.
Hollowell has been loyal to all the schools interested in him and has visited most of them. The only ones he has not visited he will visit soon. “I am visiting Michigan next week and Louisville soon,” said Jeremy. But with the wing being so wide open, how will he make a decision on a school? “I’m looking for the style of play, the conference, the coach and how he lets his players play,” said Jeremy. With Hollowell stating that he will “make a decision when the time is right,” look for a decision to come at anytime.
Jeremy Hollowell is far from being a household name just yet. With hard work and effort, along with being humble, look out for Hollowell to become one of the best talents to come out of the state of Indiana in a while.
