He is a 6-1, 235-pound 2012 recruit out of East Coweta High School in Sharpsburg, Ga., and he has played several positions on both offense and defense during his high school career. This makes him attractive to the Yellow Jackets, but they have already informed Willie Holloway that he would play linebacker if he played for Georgia Tech.
"I'm familiar with the 3-4, and I think I can fit in to any type of defense," Holloway said. Holloway plays defensive end for East Coweta but he would likely end up in the middle in the 3-4 defense. "He chases the ball well", said Scout. Com's Chad Simmons. Holloway averaged nine tackles a game as a junior.
Holloway said he has heard from about thirty interested schools during the recruiting process. Georgia Tech has as good a chance as any of those schools. "I'm very interested in Georgia Tech – they look real nice," Holloway said. Mississippi State is another of those schools showing strong interest in Holloway.
When asked about the positive draws to the Yellow Jackets, the football program as a whole and the weight room were listed as big positives for Holloway. Holloway likes everything that he's seen about the program.
Either way, Holloway hasn't chosen favorites yet, and he isn't sure when the decision will come. He said he will wait until possibly Signing Day, so Tech and other schools have plenty of time to evaluate the rising high school senior.
