One of the breakout players of the summer was rising senior Troy Holston. After racking up offers all summer long, the Floridian has made his decision.
A 6-foot-4 shooting guard at Oldsmar (Fla.) Christian, the three-star prospect will stay local and attend USF to play for Stan Heath.
"I think he's really excited to play in a big-time conference and play high-level basketball," Holston's coach at Oldsmar, Jordan Fair, told Rivals.com. "They haven't had a hometown guard like that since Dominique Jones, who was from about an hour up the road. He's excited to try and be another guy like that, and the possibility is there with his work ethic and ability to score the ball."
With good size and a deadly stroke from beyond the three-point line, Holston opened many eyes during July. While he can shoot it extremely well, he is also a bouncy finisher around the rim. In addition to earning a scholarship to USF, Holston has worked himself into position to make a strong run at the next edition of the 2014 Rivals150 thanks to hard work and taking a good look in the mirror.
"He feels great; it was kind of overwhelming," said Fair of the attention. "He worked really hard for this. He prepared for July and worked really hard in June and critiqued some things that he didn't do well in April. He got in the gym and made the adjustments."
While Holston could have taken more time with his decision and taken a bunch of visits, he found exactly what he was looking for at South Florida and decided to seize the moment and try to build on the momentum he generated in July.
"He knew that he wanted to be in Florida," said Fair. "All of those other schools were great, and he felt really comfortable with them, but he has a strong support system in Florida and really wanted to keep the ball rolling."
