Heels Co-Lead for Pa. Guard

Despite the lack of familiarity with the program, Perry Traditional Academy (Pa.) offensive lineman Cameron Holland currently considers North Carolina neck-and-neck with Pittsburgh, a program he has followed since he was a child.

"I guess the leaders would be Pitt and North Carolina," said Holland. "Both those schools have both excellent football and academic programs."

Holland, a 6-foot-3 270-pound guard, holds scholarship offers from Kentucky, Temple, and Delaware, in addition to his two co-leaders. Holland admitted that any school that has already or will in the future extend him an offer, will be under consideration.

An unmistakable difference between the Panthers and Tar Heels is distance from Holland's home.

"Naturally, I would like to stay closer to home, but I'm just going to go with which school fits me best," said Holland.

Coach Frank Cignetti is Holland's primary recruiter, but he speaks to offensive line coach Mark Weber just as much.

"I talk to Cignetti and Weber," said Holland. "We talk every so often. We text each other almost every day. They really want me to come to UNC and really want me to come to their camp."

Holland, who has already camped at West Virginia and Pitt, plans to accept the coaching staff's invitation and attend the Tar Heels' individual camp [July 14th-15th].

Following his junior season at Perry Traditional Academy, Holland was named to the first team all-city and first team All-AAA teams.
