Class of 2023 forward Ron Holland picks up Kentucky offer
By ADAM ZAGORIARon Holland, the 6-foot-9 Class of 2023 power forward from Duncanville (TX), picked up a scholarship offer from Kentucky following his recent official visit.
Ranked the No. 4 power forward in 2023 per 247Sports.com, he is also considering Auburn, Arkansas, Memphis, Texas, Houston, UCLA and the NBA G League.
“My passion for the game is from me knowing that one day my success will give not only me, but my family the opportunity to live life to it’s fullest without the stress of knowing where our next meal will come from or if there’s money for the bills,” he told ZAGSBLOG last year.
““I don’t want to see my parents live check to check no more than the next student athlete does. My family pushes me hard on and off the court. My parents and my sister do an outstanding job of holding me accountable not only in basketball, but with my schoolwork and household chores as well. Every time I step foot on the court it’s for them and I would never let them down.”
