After averaging 20-points and 11.7 rebounds per game during his junior year, Justin Holiday has become one of the most heavily recruited players on the West Coast. The 6-foot-6, 200-pound small forward from Campbell Hall High School in North Hollywood, Calif., has one just scholarship offer on the table, but it's only a matter of time before more offers begin to pour in.
"We lost in the State Semifinals, so are season is over," said Campbell Hall head coach Terry Kelly. "We graduated eight players from a team that went 32-0 last year, so we knew that this year was going to be tough. We were 26-6 this year and have everybody but one starter coming back for next year.
"Justin was the most consistent player for us this year," he added. "He was the most consistent player on both ends of the floor. Justin took on a completely different role this year, but still managed to average 20-points and 11.7 rebounds per game, all playing the guard position. He also had 104 blocks for us."
Now that his junior campaign is complete, Holiday is looking forward to what he hopes will be a successful spring and summer. During his time on the AAU Circuit, Holiday plans to run with the Pump N' Run organization.
While Holiday will have a chance to display his skills throughout the spring and summer period, a number of high-major programs are already well aware of his skills and ability.
"A lot of schools are interested in Justin right now," said Kelly. "Most of the schools from the Pac-10, WAC and Big West are really interested in him. Nevada, Washington, Arizona State, Pepperdine and many other programs have been keeping close contact.
"During the past two months, all of the schools in the Pac-10 expect for California have been by to watch him practice or play," he added. "Louisville and Nevada have also been by. As it stands right now, CS Northridge is the only school that has a firm scholarship offer on the table."
