Aliquippa, Pa. offensive guard Juantez Hollins is one of the lesser-known three-star prospects on the East Coast so far in recruiting. The 6-foot-4, 254-pounder already holds five scholarships and is starting to make his way to camps.
"I've got offers from Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Akron, Eastern Michigan and Marshall," he stated. "I'm also hearing from Virginia and a few other schools."
The Keystone State prospect recently attended Pittsburgh's camp.
"I was there on Saturday," he said. "It was good. It was a good experience, I've been up there a few times before. This time wasn't any different. It was good talking to the coaches."
Hollins mentioned his desire to go to more camps, but wasn't certain when or where at this time.
Currently Hollins claims no leader.
"Everybody is equal, but Pittsburgh does look good. I've been around Pitt for awhile now.
"For me, I'm looking at how many players they graduate each year. I know my mom and grandma want me to stay local. I don't know as much about that. I'd like to go far. I don't know what I want to study and I know I'll get playing time eventually."
Since little is known about Hollins, the lineman prospect mentioned what stands out about his ability.
"I think I'm good at blocking and holding my ground on defense," he said. "I just want to get stronger, a lot stronger and faster too."
Hollins earned second team all-conference honors as a junior.
