Clarence Holloway, Jeremiah Bryant await ruling

Talented Chicago juniors Clarence Holloway and Jeremiah Bryant have recently transferred schools and are awaiting a ruling on their eligibility. Dennis Holmes updates the situation and recruitment of both players. <p> <body> <p><b><a href="http://louisville.theinsiders.com/2/183637.html">Devon Thomas on ITV Radio this evening</a></b></p> </body>

7'0 Clarence Holloway and 6'7 Jeremiah Bryant, teammates the past two seasons at Fenger High School in Chicago, have transferred to Harlan High School in the Windy City

The two transferred to Harlan when former Fenger head coach Andre Peavy was replaced by the Fenger administration during the summer.

Because of IHSAA rules, the two talented members of the class of 2005, are awaiting a ruling to determine their eligibility for the upcoming season.

If you'll recall, Holloway and Bryant attended the U of L basketball camp last June and both performed well over the summer at the adidas ABCD camp.

Holloway has great size in the paint but needs some work conditioning wise. He's considered a top 50 prospect nationally and listed Louisville, Kentucky, Illinois, Oklahoma and Purdue at ABCD.

"His grades are good," Holmes said of Holloway. "And he's doing great with conditioning and is looking strong."

Holmes said that Louisville, Illinois and Purdue sent coaches to Harlan during the September evaluation period to check on both Holloway and Bryant.

Bryant has tremendous athleticism but needs improved perimeter skills to be a big factor at the highest division one level. Still, he's got big time potential, especially on the defensive end.

Bryant listed Louisville, Auburn and Kentucky last summer and mid major programs around the country really took a hard look during the summer evaluation period.

In addition to Holloway and Bryant, Holmes also has at his disposal one of the top sophomore classes in Chicago with 6'4 Andre Gullens, Lamont McCall, and point guard Jamel Baker. Gullens, a multi-talent prospect averaged 19 points per game as a freshman.
