"The long tradition at Indiana sold him," Richmond assistant coach Lonnie Coleman told Scout.com. "He really likes the staff and they showed him they had his best interests at heart. Plus (the state of) Indiana loves basketball and you know it's a big time basketball state."
Holman rose up charts this summer and he showed well as a defensive minded center with a burgeoning post game. He attended Indiana's elite camp last month.
Holman has yet to take the SAT so an official visit won't come until later in the fall. His high school coach said there is a plan in place for him to qualify and feels confident the late blooming center will get it done in the classroom.
"He's in line to qualify," Coleman said. "By the time he graduates he'll have all his core units and he's studying hard for the SAT."
