Bloomington – Two more big-name schools have stepped forward with scholarship offers for Lawrence Central standout Jeremy Hollowell.
After helping the Spiece Indy Stars team to championship runs at both the Hoosier Shootout and Kentucky Hoopfest, the 6'7" sophomore-to-be has added offers from both Illinois and Xavier. They join Indiana, Iowa and Cincinnati as programs that have stepped forward with early scholarship offers for the Indianapolis standout.
Hollowell saw limited minutes while playing up to varsity as a freshman last season, but it's been his play and exposure on the AAU circuit this spring and summer that has catapulted him into the forefront of the 2012 in-state class. With four high-major offers and counting, Hollowell is joining the likes of Broad Ripple's Ron Patterson, North Central's D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera, Culver's DeJuan Marrero and Carmel's A.J. Hammons as the most talked about rising in-state sophomores.
Despite the plethora of college options that are already available, Hollowell says he isn't thinking about making an early choice.
"I think I'm still a couple of years away," Hollowell said earlier this month. "I want to enjoy this – you only get one chance to go through the process."
In addition to his quintet of offers, Hollowell says that Tennessee, Purdue and Ohio State are among the other programs he likes.
Hollowell isn't the only Indy Stars standout who is earning scholarship offers these days. Avon (Ind.) H.S. big man Austin Burgett added an offer from Delaware this week. That's Burgett's second offer this summer, as Cincinnati was the first to offer the 6'8" big man.
