The recruitment of ESPN 150 defensive tackle Thomas Holley (Brooklyn, N.Y./Abraham Lincoln) began late, so when most juniors were making visits to Saturday games, Holley was hardly on the radar of colleges.
His stock skyrocketed during the winter, but Holley, No. 85 in the nation, was only able to go to some of the local schools for visits. That began changing this summer when he took a trip to Florida to see the Gators, Hurricanes and Seminoles. It continued this past weekend with back-to-back visits to Notre Dame and Ohio State.
