High School:
Averaged 22.0 points and 11.0 rebounds a game as a senior at a 6-foot-8, 192-pound swingman from J.P. Taravella High School in Coral Springs, FL near Ft. Lauderdale ... also averaged 3.0 assists and 4.0 blocks per game as a senior under coach Clarence Flemming. The Trojans posted an 18-9 record during Hollis' senior season. Taravella was the district runner-up his junior season. "We are pleased to get a player of his stature and talent level from such a heavily-recruited area," Hobbs said. "He has terrific size, shooting ability and ball-handling skills. We expect him to make an immediate contribution to the program because he has the ability to play three different positions. I think the thing that separates him is his ability to make the three-point shot. For GW fans, he is like a combination of Mike Hall and Omar Williams. He is very disciplined and has a great work ethic both on and off the court."

Hollis was named to the Class 6A First Team All-State for boys basketball by the Miami Herald on April 12. A versatile player, Hollis has played all five positions in high school. Hollis has already played one game at GW's Charles E. Smith Athletic Center as a member of the U.S. All-Stars in the Capital Classic on April 13. In that game, he came off the bench to score four points on 2-5 shooting and grab six rebounds. He also had three blocks and a steal in 18 minutes against a team of local high school all-stars.
