Since the start of training camp Rivals100 defensive tackle Thomas Holley has been keeping quiet. The Brooklyn (N.Y.) Abraham Lincoln star is keeping his concentration on the season and he is making sure it's a good one for the Railsplitters.
"We're working hard to get better," said the 6-foot-4, 299-pound Holley. "I'm definitely a whole lot better this season then I was last season. We're 3-0 and beating teams by large amounts. Everybody on the defense is stepping up and I know I'm doing my thing."
Holley's recruitment is taking a backseat to the 2013 season but he is considering a number of schools including, Syracuse, Penn State, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Florida, Rutgers, Alabama and others.
"Nothing really new is going on with recruitment," he said. "I'm just focusing on my season. I'm talking with my mother and my uncle about scheduling my official visits so we're working on that. We don't know which schools are going to get visits yet. I still want to get this out of the way as soon as possible. I want to plan my visits soon but I don't when yet."
Coaches from Florida, Penn State, Syracuse, Ohio State and Rutgers have made their way to Holley's school recently and Notre Dame coaches are expected to visit during the second week of October.
"Syracuse came yesterday," he said. "They come and talk to my coach because I'm practicing. I usually talk to them when I get home from practice on the phone or on Facebook. They say things like it was nice seeing me or that I'm progressing well."
Holley and Abraham Lincoln beat Staten Island (N.Y.) Tottenville 26-7 last weekend.
