A few days after declaring UGA one of his finalists, Grant Holloway told the AJC that he’ll take an official visit with the Bulldogs this fall.
Holloway, a 3-star receiver from Virginia, narrowed down his list to four schools this past week, one that includes UGA, Oregon, Florida and Virginia Tech.
Of the four schools he’s considering, though, it’s interesting to note that UGA is the only program to date to offer him a scholarship for both football and track. This could certainly work his UGA’s favor, as Holloway has no desire to hang up his running shoes any time soon.
“I would like to continue with my track career until my legs don’t pay the bills anymore,” Holloway told the AJC. “The colleges I’ve narrowed it down to, their track programs are top of the line. We can compete for a Pac-12 title or an SEC title or ACC title.”
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound receiver last visited UGA in July. According to Holloway, the Bulldogs made a great first impression.
“When I went to Georgia for my unofficial, (the coaches) were all waiting until my parents and I arrived at the door,” Holloway said. “Little things like that make me feel as if I’m really wanted.”
Holloway, who’s ranked as the No. 13 player overall in Virginia, says that while he’s been most impressed by UGA’s athletic programs and academic support staff, he couldn’t help but feel like a priority.
“(UGA coach) said not only do we want you, we kind of need you,” Holloway said. “When they said that, it really showed me that they want me bad.”
Holloway will schedule an official visit to UGA this fall, but is unsure exactly when that visit will take place. He will also take officials to Florida and Oregon, though he says he won’t visit Virginia Tech.
He told the AJC that he’ll commit sometime in November.
