Holts, a 6-foot-4, 266-pound offensive tackle from Indianapolis (Ind.) Warren Central, is also looking to set up visits to Oregon and Southern Cal within the same time frame. He has already visited Indiana, Louisville, Purdue, and Virginia Tech.
In Holts' lone conversation with Sam Pittman, UNC's offensive line coach, visiting Chapel Hill was the prevailing topic.
"We talked about visits and just coming down and looking at the campus," Holts said.
UNC, like every other school, is recruiting Holts as a left tackle.
Holts' junior season was his first starting for Warren Central, where he started at left tackle.
Nineteen schools have offered Holts a scholarship. Highlighting his group of offers are Arkansas, Colorado, Mississippi, Tennessee, UNC, and Virginia Tech. He believes Florida is close to joining that list.
With so many options and so few visits, Holts isn't ready to name favorite schools.
"I don't have a top five or anything right now," Holts said. "I'm just looking around right now."
Before the football season, Holts hopes to have his list of options dwindled down to a more manageable number.
"[I'm looking for] a great position coach that I can get along with, a good football team, and a really good head coach," Holts said.
A verbal commitment, though, could occur at any moment.
"Probably, [I'll make a verbal commitment in] November or December," Holts said. "Or if I take a visit and I really like it, I'll probably do it."
