Lexington Dunbar guard to visit The Hill again this weekend

Lexington Dunbar guard Taveion Hollingsworth holds multiple scholarship offers

Among the top prospects in the Bluegrass State and region, Lexington Dunbar guard Taveion Hollingsworth will make the short trip to Bowling Green this weekend to get a closer look at the Western Kentucky program.

A Scout.com three-star prospect, Hollingsworth has made prior visits to The Hill.

"The campus and facilities are really nice," he said to WKU Insider.

His relationship with WKU head coach Rick Stansbury and his staff has blossomed during recent weeks.

"It's going really good right now," said Hollingsworth, who added that he hopes to learn more about becoming "a better player" during the weekend visit.

Hollingsworth earned Sweet 16 MPV honors after leading Dunbar to its first Kentucky basketball title last season.  He averaged 21 points as a junior and was a first-team all-state selection.

In addition to WKU, Hollingsworth also holds scholarship offers from Winthrop, Wright State, Murray State, Eastern Kentucky, UAB and others.  West Virginia, Kentucky and Louisville are among the others expressing an interest and while schools are likely to continue to take a look, a pair of schools currently lead the pack.

"WKU and UAB," he said.

He currently claims no time frame for his eventual college decision.

His Scout.com evaluation describes a prospect that has the ability to score with range and can handle the stress of both guard positions.

"Hollingsworth has pretty good size at around 6-foot-3, and also is a good athlete with long arms. He is a pretty good scorer both going to the rim and from deep, and can even handle the point guard position for a few minutes at a time."
