Lancaster (Pa.) J.P. McCaskey offensive lineman Joel Holler was ranked as the top player in Pennsylvania in August by our staff of experts. However, there's a good chance he could be leaving the state.
"If I stay in state, it will be at Penn State," said the massive 6-foot-6, 330-pounder. "I wasn't at the game against Nebraska, but I heard about it. That's the kind of game that shows that PSU could be back. At the very least, they're headed in the right direction."
However, the Nittany Lions don't hold the lead for Holler.
"I don't really have a favorite," he said. "I want to go to a team that loves to run the football so my favorites are PSU, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Michigan State and Miami. They've all offered although Miami's offer isn't in writing yet. That's fine though because they say they want me and they're the National Champs. They can move slower than others if they want."
Holler will be taking at least four official visits, most of them after his season is over.
"I'm going to the Penn State-Iowa game next weekend and I'll set a few official visits probably after that," he said. "I'm not in a rush."
Holler was at the Florida State-Maryland game last weekend and will be taking in some games on TV this weekend.
