Holloway Makes Commitment

After picking up his release from Indiana, Terrell Holloway weighed his options. In the end it was an Atlantic-10 program that offered the best fit.

Former Indiana signee Terrell Holloway made his college decision Tuesday night. The Cincinnati (Ohio) Harmony standout will stay in Ohio to play his college ball and will attend Xavier.

"That was just the program that I felt that I was comfortable with to this point," Holloway said. "The thing that brought me to it was the opportunity to come in and play as a freshman with Andrew Lavender leaving."

"They have a lot of NBA players too," he said. "I think they've had 14 pros in 14 years. I know they have one of the highest graduation rates in the country. I think they've graduated 73 straight players."

Holloway also cited his relationship with first year assistant coach Emmanuel "Book" Richardson as one of the reasons he opted to go with the Musketeers.

"I think my relationship with Book was one of the biggest parts for me," Holloway said. "I've known him since I was 11 years old. I used to play against him and then I played with him when I was 16 on the Gauchos."

The 6-foot, 175-pound point guard is the fifth senior to commit to Xavier. He joins Brad Redford, Brian Walsh, Mark Lyons and Kenny Frease to make up their 2008 class.

Holloway picked Xavier over strong interest from USC, Indiana, Virginia and St. John's.
