Holland Happy to End Recruiting Process

Pittsburgh (Pa.) Perry Traditional offensive lineman Cameron Holland became an official member of the 2007 recruiting class this morning when he faxed his letter of intent to the UNC football office at 9 a.m.

The 6-foot-3 270-pounder took a look at hometown Pittsburgh following John Bunting's dismissal, but firmed up his decision after meeting with the new coaching staff in January. Holland was ready for Signing Day to arrive so that he could move past the madness known as recruiting.

"It's a weird process – it's both fun and stressful," Holland said. "But I'm glad to get it over with and I'm happy with my decision. I'm sure everything will work out."

Holland said the coaching staff is projecting him as a guard or possibly a center. While he hasn't spent much time in Chapel Hill since committing to UNC in July, Holland was able to develop some relationships with several of his future teammates during his official visit.

"When I was on my official visit, there were four or five other players taking their visits the same weekend," Holland said. "Most of those players were also commits, so I had a chance to bond with them. Not so much with the current players, but with the guys coming in next year."

As a senior, Holland was named first team Class AAA All-State by the Associated-Press. He was named to the Harrisburg Patriot-News "Platinum 33" team.

Holland plans to enroll at UNC for the second session of summer school, beginning June 21st.
