Wolverines Battle Mountaineers

"It's neck-and-neck right now with Michigan and West Virginia," Prince Holloway said. "As far as a leader goes, I'm solid with both teams. For me though, I'm really thinking about those two and Cincinnati. And if Cincinnati offers, I'm about sure I'll end up making my decision between these three schools. I haven't set up any official visits yet, and will be getting together with my coach to..."

Prince Holloway, the 5-foot-9, 160-pound three-star wide receiver from Cape Coral, Fla., says both Michigan and West Virginia now lead solidly over Cincinnati (no offer), but also says he's considering Florida State, South Florida and Oregon (no offer).

"It's neck-and-neck right now with Michigan and West Virginia," Holloway said. "As far as a leader goes, I'm solid with both teams. For me though, I'm really thinking about those two and Cincinnati. And if Cincinnati offers, I'm about sure I'll end up making my decision between these three schools.

"I haven't set up any official visits yet, and will be getting together with my coach to start setting up some dates next week," he said. "I know I want to get out to West Virginia and Michigan for sure as well as Florida State and South Florida for sure.

"I like the Florida schools for a few reasons still. I took a visit to Florida State last year and had a great time, and I like the tradition they have there. At USF, I had a great time down there for camp and a lot of players from my school are either playing football there or going to school there.

"But as far as that fifth option goes for my official visit, I'm pretty open on that, and am kind of thinking about Tennessee."

However, Holloway says his top three – West Virginia, Michigan and Cincinnati – are the three schools he's also talking with the most. And despite interest in the Florida schools, distance will not play a role in his final decision.

"Location really doesn't matter to me," he said. "I just want to go wherever fits the best and want to see what else is out there other than what's here in my home state.

"I like the spread offense that both West Virginia and Michigan run," he said. "Both schools especially like those small receivers that get into small spaces and can score touchdowns. That's exactly what I am and I believe I can fit into their offenses. Both are pretty equal in terms of their offenses and both offer me some good benefits as a player to go there."

Holloway also says he'd take an official to Cincinnati if they offer.

"I'd go on an official there if Cincinnati offers," he said. "Their coaches mostly call and talk to my coach and they've recently called me and have said they really look forward to meeting me. But they've also said that they want to get some film on me, so I'm in the process of putting together a highlight tape from this year to get to them, and then we'll see what they have to say.

"The same is true with Oregon," he said. "They're also interested but they want some film on me. If both of these schools end up offering me that would really impact my decision. And if Oregon offers, I'd really be a lot more interested in them. I just like their offense and how fast they play the game of football."

Cape Coral (4-0) plays Tametero Ridge High school tonight.

Holloway says he has 20 catches for 350 yards and five touchdowns at the wide receiver position this year and also reports 14 carries for 250 yards and three touchdowns out of the backfield.

He claims a 2.8 GPA, a 740 2-part SAT and a 16 SAT with plans to retake both tests this month.
