  • "I love it out here," said Hollins. "I love working with (Mississippi State offensive line) Coach (John) Hevesy. He is amazing. I love how he coaches us. He coaches us like we are his kids. I love his attention to detail and how he tells us to work in the drills."

    Hollins is being highly recruited. He's already received nine offers and expects one from Mississippi State soon.

    "Mississippi State is recruiting me, but I guess you could say it is medium interest because I don't have an offer from them yet," said Hollins. "But I'm expecting one pretty soon if I keep working hard."

    He pointed out what the Mississippi State recruiting coach likes about him.

    "Brian Johnson is recruiting me," said Hollins. "We didn't get to talk to each other today but I know that he likes the way that I work and how I play. He also has told me that he likes how I am as a human being, my character."

    After camping at Mississippi State, he came away very impressed with what he saw.

    "I love Mississippi State," said Hollins, who also unofficially visited Mississippi State during their recent spring game. "They are in the SEC and I love how physical they play, especially the O-line. The academic side is pretty good. And I love the campus. I just like everything about them."
