Chris Beard is in hot pursuit of one of the top players in the 2023 recruiting cycle.
Five-star power forward Ronald Holland announced his top options for his recruitment. Texas made the cut along with Arkansas, Kentucky, UCLA and the NBA G League.
Holland ranks as the No. 1 player in the state of Texas and the No. 9 overall prospect in the nation for the 2023 class. 247Sports’ Brandon Jenkins spoke highly of Holland’s skill set in his scouting report.
Holland has a high motor to go along with good mobility, length, and agility. He runs the floor and changes ends well. Holland is both very active and versatile defensively. He is capable of impacting the game in a number of ways, but his ability to crash the glass maybe his biggest strength. He has worked on his shooting mechanics as they have progressed since his arrival in high school. He needs to continue to develop in that area of his game. A young prospect for his class, Holland’s upside will be based upon his mindset and dedication in improving his craft.
The Duncanville product is expected to make a visit to Texas in Sept. to take part in a huge recruiting weekend with Alabama football coming to town.
Texas is squarely in the mix for another elite talent after signing two five-stars in its 2022 signing class.
