I'm told Hollis has not yet hired an agent. But since he entered last year, too, there's no going back this time. #Hoyas— Tarik El-Bashir (@TarikElBashir) March 27, 2012
"Hollis returned for his junior year after submitting his name for the 2011 NBA Draft," John Thompson III said. "We fully anticipated he would enter the 2012 draft after this season. He is an extremely hard worker and we wish him the best as he takes his next step."
