It is hard to believe that this 299 pound man was a basketball player before starting football just over a year ago in his junior year of high school. He wanted to play football to stay in shape. He is now the number three defensive tackle in the country. He is also top ranked in New York for the class of 2014. With the amount of scholarship offers the man has received, he even gathered the attention of Nick Saban from Alabama just three days after sending in his highlight tape.
Thomas Holley went for a visit to Syracuse in August and seems to have found a fit for himself. He seems to be just as impressed with what they have to offer as their interest in him.
