On Tuesday, Syracuse watched film on the talented athlete. They liked him so much they decided to offer on the spot.
"One of their coaches (Tim Lester) talked to my coach and then gave me a call," Holcy said. "I talked to him and he offered. He said he liked how I played and how I can go up and get the ball. He said he was excited about me and that I can really fit into their offense.
"He said they can create mismatches with my size and use me on out routes, fades, go routes and things like that."
The offer was a surprise because Holcy had not previously heard from Syracuse.
"I was just in a state of shock, really," Holcy said. "It kind of came out of nowhere because I hadn't talked to them before. I guess they just watched my tape for the first time (on Tuesday). But I'm going to give them a look like I do all my offers."
Syracuse is expected to come down to visit Holcy between the 18th and 21st of May. That visit will be critical in order for Holcy to get to know the Orange a bit better.
Holcy claims no favorites at this point in the cycle. He is looking to start narrowing his recruitment over the summer.
"I'm not really focused on my recruitment right now," Holcy said. "I'm focused on school and just getting better. Once school is over, during the summer, I'll start looking at things."
Holcy says he is looking at every school that has offered and that includes the Orange. He is looking forward to getting to know the school and the coaches better, and says they will be in the mix for an official this fall.
