2017 Recruiting Class Addition Prospect

Postby Ruckus on Tue Mar 21, 2017 7:51 am

Combo guard Tray Hollowell (6'2" 175) from Hopkinsville Ky./University Heights Academy will be on campus this weekend for an official visit. MY and Kerns went up to Ky. last week for a personal visit.

He has several offers and looks promising. Good student, hard worker.

He scored his 2000th point in January this past season. http://www.nextuprecruits.com/news_article/show/644421?referrer_id=1982313 Here's a link that describes him- haven't found any other writeups that aren't behind paywalls.

Here is a list of nine. I have also read Ky. Wesleyan, Oklahoma State, and Missouri. No doubt some of these may not be accurate, and he may have more or fewer. The reports that seem the most persistent are EKU, Samford, Ohio, ETSU and Ky. Wesleyan. http://bluegrasspreps.com/ky-boys-baske ... 29688.html

One wonders why he is not yet committed, but some very good players wait until late to decide. His film looks promising (27 ppg!), but no doubt MY and Dustin want to see him perform personally. It is likely they are also considering other possibilities.

Very successful player (POY) in a highly competitive 7A league. Not real big, but consistent and active, and accomplished scorer (23.2 ppg). Reminds me of Karl Cochran in a big way; is from the same area. Not widely recruited to date; had injury that kept him out of AAU early.Will only get better. Hard worker. Has the feel of a SHD.

Evidently just had another player commit-from tweet by Kevin. Filling gaps and getting better.

Hollowell should be of help to us sooner rather than later.

Good scoop, guys. Can't have too many guards and ball handlers.

It's hard to get tons of information, I guess, on "mid-major" college basketball recruiting. But with the high school season now over, is there anything new to report on Wofford's recruits? Does Storm Murphy seem like a guy, at this point, who might start at point guard as a freshman? Do they like Keve Aluma's progress? What do folks know about Tray Hollowell? Any word on how these guys have developed over recent months?

Here is a little taste of Storm:

Up for the "crossover of the year" award

I have heard the coaches are VERY high on Aleve who was his conference POTY. He avg'd double/double for the year. Still raw but very athletic and long.

Hollowell was considered a very good prospect in WKy. All region and 3rd team all state. Was hearing from TennTech when he committed to us last weekend.

I feel so sorry for that kid he juked. His friends probably call him "Burns" for the floor burns he got when Storm crossed him!
