Hamilton HS ATH Malcolm Holland (Chandler, AZ) has flown under the radar for much of this recruiting season, but showed his playmaking ability throughout his HS career. The talented ATH will not sign with a particular school on Signing Day and will visit Boise State later this month. Will he receive an offer on that visit?

"I'll be up in Boise on the 18th, 19th, and 20th of February," he said. "It sounds like I'm going to get an offer, but they want to know more about my character and personality first," he added.

Holland says he'll commit to Boise State should he receive that coveted offer. Why? He says he wants to learn from the best.

"I'll commit if they offer," he stated. "I mean, Boise is a football town and it's a fun place to play from what I'm hearing. The coaches know what they're doing, the best is there, and I want to learn from the best."

Boise State likes Holland at CB. His versatility makes him a valuable asset as he can play CB, S, WR, and return punts/kicks as well.

"They like how versatile I am. I can play all over the field," he said. "I'm a big fan of their defense. You can't praise Boise State enough for how they play. Kyle Wilson came out of that defense, a big playmaker. They always hit hard and don't miss tackles. That's something I pride myself on."

The Hamilton Huskies are "the" program in the State of Arizona for those who follow HS football in the Southwest. They have won the 5A State Championship three years in a row and are 42-2 over that stretch.

"We won state again this year, 15-0," Holland said. "I'm a winner. I know what winning is and I know how to win on and off the field. It's a whole mind-set. That's what it comes down to."

Malcolm used his 4.4 speed to his advantage on the punt/kick return unit. Returning one or two kicks for a TD is solid, but five? That's rare.

"I took one back 81 yards to the house against Bishop Gorman in our first game. I went up the sideline and just cut it back across the field," he said. "I just outran the defense on a few of the others. It all comes down to a combination of good blocking and speed."

What does Holland bring to the field?

"I'm a hard worker and I've been hard working ever since I started playing," he said. "A guy can be a 6'6 WR and I know I'm going to lock him down. I'm always in the weight room and working on my game."

As a senior, Holland (5'11, 165, 4.4) racked up 75 tackles and 6 INTs for the Hamilton defense.
