Triple-doubles are a rarity, but not for 6-foot-9, 210-pound center Eli Holman. Holman, a 2007 prospect out of Richmond (Calif.) High School, is averaging 11 points, 10 rebounds and 12 blocks per game through the first seven games of the season. Those type of numbers have the attention of college programs across the country.
"New Mexico, California, Oregon State and St. Mary's have all watched me play this year," said Holman. "I'm also hearing from San Francisco, Washington, Pepperdine, Syracuse, Connecticut and Washington State.
"I'm definitely still open and would like to hear from some other big schools."
New Mexico is the one school to have offered Holman, who carries a 2.9 GPA.
With a tremendous wingspan and a great sense of timing, Holman is a terror on the defensive end. Offensively, he is still a work in progress, but he is developing a "go-to" move with a left handed jump hook.
"I'm going to continue to work hard in school," said Holman. "On the court, I'm working on my right hand and my 15-footer. My jump hook and drop step are working for me, and I have the timing that it takes to be a shot blocker."
