Lancaster (Pa.) JP McCaskey offensive lineman Joel Holler is the top ranked player in the Keystone State this year. Being heavily recruited with more than 40 offers, the massive lineman is in no hurry to make a decision.
"I'm going to start setting up my visits soon so I should have all five scheduled by the end of this month," said the 6-foot-6, 330-pounder. "I'm thinking about only taking one during the season and probably the other four during December and January. I can't see myself deciding much before Signing Day."
Holler has the same five favorites he's had for the last few months. However, a couple of teams are slowly moving ahead of the pack.
"Ohio State and Penn State are probably at the top right now," he said. "OSU is off to a great season and they love to run the ball. Penn State's offense has been impressive and they've proven that the program is back near the top."
After the two Big Ten powers, Holler lists Miami, Michigan State and Virginia Tech.
"Miami is the only one that hasn't offered in writing, but coach Kehoe tells me I have an offer," he said. "Michigan State is struggling a bit this year but I still like them and the coaches are good. Virginia Tech is obviously a great team and program and they run the ball a ton."
Holler is a dominant lineman with surprising quickness and agile footwork despite his 330-pound frame. He plans to take all of his official visits.
"These schools have been recruiting me this hard, I owe them all a look," he said. "It's going to be a tough decision."
