Holiday is a Non-Stop Baller

The elite 2015 combo guard prospect, Aaron Holiday from North Hollywood Campbell Hall, says he's playing non-stop hoops to try to continue to get better...

North Hollywood (Calif.) Campbell Hall combo guard Aaron Holiday is one of the elite prospects in the west coast class of 2015, but that hasn't made him not want to get better.

Holiday has been playing as much basketball as possible in hopes of further impressing scouts and college coaches.

"We're at the Peach Jam right now," Holiday said. "I've just been playing ball non-stop trying to get better. There's a ton of good players up here, so I'm looking forward to seeing how I do."

In the morning game at the Peach Jam Thursday, in fact, Holiday led California Supreme with 18 points (as his team's leading scorer), 6 rebounds, and 3 assists in 19 minutes to a 71-58 win over Team Takeover.

Holiday is mostly hearing from the Pac-12 and is looking to visit a few schools this summer.

"I'm being recruited by a lot of schools on the West Coast," he said. "I went on an unofficial visit to Southern California and I've got a visit to UCLA coming up in August.

"They're both schools close to me and they have a lot of good things that I like with the new coaching staffs and everything."

The Arizona coaching staff has also been keeping an eye on Holiday.

"They stay in touch," Holiday said. "I've been getting stuff from them for awhile. I think they're going to be watching me at the Peach Jam, so hopefully I'll play well."

Holiday believes his versatility will help him with recruiters.

"A lot of schools are recruiting me as a combo guard," Holiday said. "I've been working on my handle and my ability to set my teammates up, but I also feel I'm strong enough and can score enough to help out at the two. I like both positions, so it works."

Although Holiday's played major roles for Pac-12 schools, he claims distance won't be a factor in his decision.

"I definitely like schools on the West Coast, but if I think there is a school that is best for me away from home, I will go," Holiday said. "I don't know when I will decide."
