Elite 2015 Linebacker Wants to Visit

Four-star outside linebacker Jeffery Holland will be one of the most sought after recruits in the 2015 class. He stars for Jacksonville Trinity Christian and helped lead them to a state championship win over Clearwater Central Catholic.

Holland talked afterwards a little about his recruitment. While he says he remains wide open, a few teams jump out at him.

"I like Auburn, Ohio State and Florida," Holland said. "I also like Alabama and North Carolina (former Tar Heel Lawrence Taylor is his favorite player) too. I don't have a leader and that [list] is not in any order."

Holland talked a little about some of those teams listed above.

"I like Florida," Holland said. "What happened this season does not affect me. Teams sometimes just have bad seasons. I am not down on Florida.

"I can see myself playing at Ohio State and in that defense. I do like them and can play a role there.

"And Auburn has just had a good year and they have caught my attention."

Holland says Ohio State is recruiting him the hardest and he hopes to get to Columbus this spring or summer. He went there last summer as well.

"I want to go back," Holland said. "I also want to get out to UCLA and see them with my boy [Victor Alexander]."

Alexander, a junior linebacker at Trinity Christian, recently committed to the Bruins.

Holland is a long 6-foot-2, 230-pounder and the No. 4 ranked outside linebacker in the 2015 class.
