Holloway's coach breaks it down

Arizona received a commitment from corner Prince Holloway on Thursday. Read on to see what his junior college coach has to say about what type of player Arizona is getting, how many years he has to play, and more.

For cornerback Prince Holloway, the comfort level with the coaching staff at Arizona was too much for any other school to overcome.

The 5-foot-9, 160-pound Hutchinson (Kansas.) Community College athlete gave his verbal on Thursday due in large part to his knowledge of the staff.

"Coach Leftwich was the main recruiter, but Coach Magee knew him at Michigan," Hutchinson coach Rion Rhoades said. "Prince had actually committed to him at Michigan. I think as soon as he got back in touch with Magee and then he got the offer, I think he was real excited about it."

Rhoades believes it did not take long for Holloway to make the decision, especially when he found out the current coaching staff wanted him.

"He got to know a lot of those guys from being recruited out of high school, so I think it made it pretty easy for him to commit there once they committed to him by offering him a scholarship," Rhoades said.

Rhoades has actually never coached Holloway in a game, but says that he is impressed with what he has seen from him so far.

"He actually redshirted last year," Rhoades said. "He is super athletic, fast, and an explosive player. He does a lot of things really good. We recruited and signed him as a receiver and he can definitely do that. He is a great slot receiver and return man.

"We actually moved him to corner though and he does a great job there. My understanding is that Arizona is going to sign him as a corner and return man and that is where he will start out."

Rhoades believes that the newest Wildcat is one that is already set up for future success.

"Arizona is getting a very high level player," he said. "He is very skilled, very fast and just has a lot of upside. He will be three for three, so he will have three years to play three seasons and has done very well on his school work here."
