In a recent trip to the Los Angeles area evaluating underclassmen prospects, 2015 guard Aaron Holiday was arguably the biggest eye opener.
"I've been playing pretty good actually," Holiday said. "This is probably my best year so far and hopefully I can continue that next year."
Holiday, who has grown from 5-foot-9 to just over 6-foot in the past year, is the brother of Jrue and Justin Holiday, and plays at the same high school – North Hollywood (Calif.) Campbell Hall.
"They taught me a lot just with my defense and offense pretty much," Holiday said. "How to get by people and keep them on your hip and stuff like that, they've taught me a lot."
Although he's forced to play with out the ball in his hands on his high school team, he's tracking as a lead guard, and a good one at that. He gets into the lane when he wants, scores well at the rim and has good court vision.
"I'm a point guard so I will obviously play with the ball in my hands, but for now I'm just doing what I can to help our team win," Holiday explained after a 24-point outing against Brentwood Academy.
An impressive athlete, Holiday has tremendous body control and a knack for scoring through contact when he gets into the paint.
"I just like the contact pretty much, so I look for it a lot," Holiday said.
A high major recruit, Holiday said he isn't paying attention to who is recruiting him right now.
"It's going good I guess,," he said of his recruitment. "I haven't really heard anything."
