ABCD: 6'11 Clarence Holloway likes Cards

TEANECK, NJ -- Coach Pitino is in search of size in the class of 2005 and this 6'11 center from Chicago, IL, who attended the UofL basketball camp last month, is receiving significant early interest from the Cards.

6'11 Clarence Holloway of Chicago (IL) Fenger High School has loads of potential and is receiving considerable attention from the University of Louisville.

Holloway, a member of the class of 2005, attended Coach Pitino's Individual Instruction Skills Camp last week and showed tremendous promise during individual instruction drills and station work. Apparently, Holloway enjoyed his time in Louisville.

"It was great, a very positive experience," Holloway said of the UofL basketball camp. "I felt very comfortable with the players and coaches."

While at the UofL basketball camp, Holloway displayed solid post moves and a soft touch in the paint. Clarence also has adept passing skills for a player his size and showed an ability to step out on the perimeter and knock down the perimeter jump shot.

Clarence told ITV he intends to utilize the skills he learned at Coach Pitino's camp this week at ABCD.

"It's going to help me a whole lot," Holloway said of the skills he learned at UofL's camp. "Not many guys out here use them [proper post moves]and they get me open alot of times...so I like the moves I learned at the University of Louisville."

Holloway has shown a solid work ethic at both the UofL and ABCD camps and the desire to learn and improve his skills.

Like many young big men, Clarence needs additional strength and conditioning to reach his potential but he has the frame and the desire to do those things.

Holloway lists Louisville, Kentucky, Purdue, Illinois, Florida and Oklahoma.

He informed ITV that he has not visited any other schools besides Louisville at this point and has none scheduled in the near future.

And he's also set a few goals for himself this week at his second ABCD Camp.

"Work hard, learn and be the best," Holloway said.
