Jake Holland is a junior linebacker prospect from Pelham (Ala.) High School. Holland, 6-1 and 215 pounds, recorded 129 tackles this past season as Pelham finished 6-5.
"I did pretty well this season," Holland said. "I will begin to work on getting better for next year. I need to improve on reads. Everything else is pretty good."
Thus far Holland has two scholarship offers, one from UAB and the other from Duke. He will visit the Blue Devils this coming weekend after Thanksgiving.
"I am pretty excited about it and I can't wait to get to campus, see the coaches, and everything else. I am not sure what to expect. I seem to have a good relationship with the coaches there.
"Right now I am really not sure on where I want to go. It's all the name schools that I like and where I am looking. Everyone is sending me letters. I am just not sure yet.
Right now I want to hit the weight room and I may even run track to get faster. I will prepare hard this off-season."
