Terrel Holloway

The one time Indiana commit has verballed to Sean Miller and Xavier University program. This is quite the coup. He is a consensus top 150 player and Rivals has him right at #100. More importantly he is a 'pure' point moreso than 'Cheeky' or Redford. This obviously means the transfer rumor is true and we may lose one or two. really likes him and had this to say in their scouting recap of him:

'Formerly at Hempstead, NY high, this quick, clever passing 175 pound southpaw played this past spring and summer for the New England Playaz. He directs the break with authority and skill, often throwing bounce passes at just the right time. In the half court set, he similarly drives and usually dishes, though he'll finish himself (sometimes drawing free throw opportunities) when the defense plays him to pass. At various events, we saw him try a total of three treys (all when open) and he hit one of them. High major prospect.'

Book Richardson is getting the credit for landing this kid. In my mind this makes it more likely someone will be redshirted next year, especially if Graves does indeed stay.

So why everybody else was worrying (myself included) about losing Sean; he went about his usual business of building our program for tomorrow. Next year will be interesting as we will have a total of seven new players. When over half your roster is new guys it may take some time for chemistry and player rotations to be formulated. I would really love to see this team take an early fall trip some where to get the extra practices and time together on the court.
