Asheville, N.C. athlete Tysean Holloway is close to making a decision. The 6-foot-1, 187-pounder announced a couple weeks back plans to decide soon and now he may have a date and an idea of where he's headed.
"I'm very close to making my decision now since I'm graduating in December," he said. "I'm just ready to get it over with and settle this whole process down.
"If everything goes as planned when I have to meet with the dean of admissions at Duke, then that will be the day I make my commitment and it will be to the Duke Blue Devils."
Holloway clarified he hasn't made his selection, but is in the process of setting up the visit to possibly do it.
"I'm setting the visit up now," he said. "I want to take my official there before I call it. I'm pretty sure I will do it the week they play Florida State (10/14)."
So, what's making the Blue Devils stand out?
"I'm looking at Duke the hardest because of their education, it's the closest thing to an Ivy League school in the country," he said. "That would benefit me the most in the long run job searching wise. Football is temporary, but knowledge is life long."
Through five games this season, Holloway has helped his team to a 5-0 record as he's posted over 600-yards of offense and 15 touchdowns.
