On Saturday evening, combo-guard Andre Hollins of White Station High School in Memphis committed to Minnesota. Hollins had offers from and visited Minnesota as well as Stanford, Auburn, Harvard and Ole Miss but picked the Gophers in the end. Hollins is a huge pickup for the Gophers.
Ranked as the number 30 shooting guard in the county, he is a very solid basketball player. He lacks ideal size for a shooting guard but makes up for it with his athleticism and skill set.
Hollins is a very quick player who also has a lot of spring in his step to leap over defenders. He uses this combination to blow by defenders and get to the rim where he has no problem finishing. Hollins also has smooth stroke and is already legitimate three point threat.
The Gophers class now consists of Minnesota native Joe Coleman as well as Hollins. Gopher fans can look forward to big things from this duo in the future.
Goldensports.net will have a full interview with Hollins as soon as possible.
