Summer Circuit A Help For Talented QB

East Chapel Hill High standout Kyle Holland has a lot of local interest and is working on becomming a high major talent.

The more colleges learn about Kyle Holland, the more they like about the East Chapel Hill (N.C.) quarterback. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder took a recent trip to Virginia and he liked what he saw in Charlottesville.

"It was very good. We went up and met with Coach Poindexter for an hour, then we go to talk with Mike Groh for a little while," said Holland. "One player took us around on a campus tour and we saw the facilities. We went to practice and watched the quarterbacks a litte bit and then we talked with the coaches a little bit."

While Virginia has not offered, Holland liked what he heard from the coaches.

"It sounded good to me. They liked what they saw on film, and Coach (Mike) Groh is going down to Georgia in a few weeks to watch me throw at the Elite 11. I feel like I've improved, and hope he sees that."

Holland attributes that improvement to working with a quarterback this offseason, and a change was very evident going from game film last year to the Combine in late March.

"I have been working with Skip Stitzell and I feel like I am 100% better at everything; improved footwork, mechanics, and even touch on the ball. I am just a much better quarterback."

For schools that cannot see Holland in person at the upcoming camp, he hopes to show off at some college camps this summer.

"Virginia wants me up there for a day, and I will probably do that. I plan to go to North Carolina for a day, Elon, and pretty much all the schools around here want me to come throw, but I really haven't made much of a choice yet where I want to go."
