Holland On Brink of Decision

Standout offensive lineman Cameron Holland is down to two schools and has a decision to make. Does he want to play for the city school or an up-and-coming program down South? He is within days of his final decision.

"I should have a decision within the next two days," stated stout offensive lineman Cameron Holland (6-foot-2 ½ 3 inches, 285 pounds) from Perry Traditional Academy in Pittsburgh, PA.

"I'm going to decide between Pitt and North Carolina. I'm going to sit down and talk with my parent and coach, but they told me this is strictly my final decision."

Scout.com Big East Analyst Bob Lichtenfels ranks Holland the 33rd best player in the state of Pennsylvania. He's considered a "three-star" lineman. Cameron was named to the first team all-City League and first team All-AAA teams as a junior.

"I really like Pitt and I feel comfortable with their coaching staff. It's the hometown team and I have grown up rooting for them. Plus Pitt is close to home. I think it would be great to play for Coach (Dave) Wannstedt. North Carolina is an up and coming program. Their coaching staff is great and I like Coach (Frank) Cignetti."

Cameron holds scholarship offers from Pitt, North Carolina, Kentucky and Temple. He is capable of bench pressing 360 pounds and squatting 490 pounds. Holland opened some eyes when he ran a 5.03 forty-yard dash the Scout.com All-American combine in Pittsburgh. Cameron has been a three-year starter on the offensive and defensive lines.

Holland is capable of playing offensive center and guard on the next level. "I can play center or guard."

And the versatile lineman should have his mind made up this week.

"I should have a decision very soon," he said. "I have two great schools to chose from."
