Holloway Enjoys Tennessee Visit

Since he can't take official visits, Terrell Holloway paid his own way to Tennessee this past weekend. The 6-foot lead man gave the visit high marks and discussed the recruiting process.

Despite having a number of interested parties, Terrell Holloway's recruitment has been put on hold.

"See right now I can only take unofficial visits," Holloway said. "In October I plan on taking the ACT and once I take the ACT then I'm going to get more serious and start taking official visits."

Holloway did, however, join a handful of 2009 prospects on Tennessee's campus this past weekend. Among the highlights of his weekend in Knoxville were the festivities before the football game.

"It was real nice and everything," Holloway said of his unofficial visit. "The football game was crazy. I liked it. It was my first time down there."

"They showed me about the tradition of the football team and the Tennessee walk, where they had 50,000 people outside of the stadium before the game. They were showing a ton of love. People wanted autographs from us and were taking pictures of us."

Holloway, who is also considering Virginia, Gonzaga, New Mexico and Nevada, doesn't have any other unofficial visits set up. The 6-foot, 175-pound point guard mentioned he's not in a hurry to make a decision.

"It's basically the same thing as it was before I went on the visit," Holloway claimed. "Right now I'm not really in a rush so I don't know when I will sign."

To go with the pressure of trying to pick a college, Holloway recently transferred to a prep school. This coming year he'll attend Cincinnati (Ohio) Harmony Prep.

"I like it a lot. Everyone in the house is getting a long and everything is real cool."

Holloway checked in at No. 16 on Scout.com's point guard list following the July evaluation period.
