Terrell Holloway seeks release from LOI

  • 03/10/2008 4:42 pm in

That’s the word, according to Jerry Meyer of Rivals.com. Like Devin Ebanks, Holloway had an agreement with IU to be released from his Letter of Intent if a coaching change was made or the school was placed on NCAA probation. Shortly after he signed with Indiana, I talked with one scout who told me he was skeptical about Holloway’s ability to be an impact player in the Big Ten. According to this scout, Holloway was the fourth most valuable of the signees. I’ve also heard rumblings that Holloway’s jump shot was going to need quite a bit of work. With that said, you never like to lose a player given the circumstances but I’m sure IU will be just fine without the services of Terrell Holloway.

    No loss.

  • In lieu of the Jamarcus Ellis mess, I was wondering if IU isn't better off without Kelvin Sampson because of the kind of kid he was recruiting to the university. Yes, Sampson brought in E.J. who seems like a nice enough kid though there are serious holes in his game but he also brought in Jamarcus Ellis, who has been a complete headache and Jordan Crawford, who is a turnover-ridden mess at the point. I think IU fans would rather lose with kids like D.J. White than win with no character guys like Ellis.

    I think when the smoke clears after the season you will find that Tom Pritchard is by far
    the best player we have coming for 2008/2009. He was playing along side a top rated
    forward however the kid got hurt and is out for the season. That made Tom the go to guy
    and he has been great! He is a big and strong and loves to rebound and mix it up under
    the basket. He can run the floor,has good hands and a nice shooting tough. He is a keeper.

  • Uh, I'd rather win. Granted, I love players with heart…but yeah, I like winning.

    RonB…You Tube Matt Roth……the kid is a bad ass!

  • IUDOMINATION

    unknown “scout” hates on this guy when everyone else has holloway rated a lot higher than pritchard or roth …. the denial is amazing. we are gonna suck next year w/o holloway and ebanks (no one and done player is going to come to a school who cant play in the tourney b/c of ncaa violations)

  • jgongora

    yeah I like winning too.

  • Ben

    we aren't going to miss the tourney…..the only thing that we can do now is get a coach who can maybe bring some players with him….or at least pic up some in the spring and then build on the 09 recruiting class. I think we will be ok with a GOOD coach.

  • Timmy

    Man, we have some backstabbing fans. IDKWTI, Ellis, and Crawford are now being thrown under the bus like Bracey Wright and Robert Vaden.

  • kelin

    What sucks about our upcoming class is you Matt Roth first and last name is one sylable…..you cannot do a chant for it….

  • ALH_00

    Agree Timmy (if just this once). Different year…same story.

  • Ben

    rick pitino may be our next coach……..that is the best news I've ever herd

    Just wondering if you have watched Jordan or Ellis play this year Ellis is the glue to this team and since the first few games crawford might have just been are 3rd best player down the stretch he doesnt turn it over as much anymore can just as well is “EJ” and loves to pass the ball he will average 20 a game next year and you will be talking about how good he is……and jamarcus ellis won us the G Tech game so i think he has character

    I really donot see why folks have to trash the team and specific players. They are just kids on a big stage and under a microscope. I support DD in his effort to teach Ellis to be a man and I pray he gets it the first time. Why trash him? Trash Elliot SPitzer but not Ellis.

    Crawford is a wonderful player for a freshman . DOes no one remember the to's from George McGinnis, QUinn Buckner, Isiah ?
