Holiday hoping to impress

2015 guard Aaron Holiday is hoping to impress numerous colleges this summer. Read on to see who he may visit, where Arizona stands, and more.

Woodland Hills (Calif.) Campbell Hall 2015 combo guard Aaron Holiday is only heading into his junior year in high school, but his name has been known to national recruiters for years.

Holiday has been playing as much basketball as possible in hopes of further impressing scouts and college coaches.

"We're at the Peach Jam right now," Holiday said. "I've just been playing ball non stop trying to get better. There's a ton of good players up here, so I'm looking forward to seeing how I do."

Holiday is mostly hearing from the Pac-12 and is looking to visit a few schools this summer.

"I'm being recruited by a lot of schools on the West Coast," he said. "I went on an unofficial visit to Southern California and I've got a visit to UCLA coming up in August.

"They're both schools close to me and they have a lot of good things that I like with the new coaching staffs and everything."

The Arizona coaching staff has also been keeping an eye on Holiday.

"They stay in touch," Holiday said. "I've been getting stuff from them for awhile. I think they're going to be watching me at the Peach Jam, so hopefully I'll play well."

Holiday believes his versatility will help him with recruiters.

"A lot of schools are recruiting me as a combo guard," Holiday said. "I've been working on my handle and my ability to set my teammates up, but I also feel I'm strong enough and can score enough to help out at the two. I like both positions, so it works."

Although Holiday's played major roles for Pac-12 schools, he claims distance won't be a factor in his decision.

"I definitely like schools on the West Coast, but if I think there is a school that is best for me away from home, I will go," Holiday said. "I don't know when I will decide."
