The Bruin Snatch
Wednesday evening Caleb Hollander (Nashville Christian) ended it. He verbally committed to Belmont.
“Man it just felt right,” said Hollander. “It’s where my heart was at and I figured why let it go on any longer. I’m so excited!”
Hollander’s rise was magical, as OVCHoops.com documented July 29th.
Hollander is not an ordinary senior. He is home-schooled and could have been a member of the Class of 2016. Because he elected to join 2017 the forward collected D1 offers from Oral Roberts, Utah State, Loyola (MD), SIUE, Austin Peay, Santa Clara, Bowling Green, UTEP, St. Bonaventure, Charlotte, Marshall, High Point, Oral Roberts, Old Dominion.
Stanford, Princeton, Utah, and many others were interested in hosting, possibly offering.
Was Belmont Head Coach Rick Byrd happy to hear?
“Yes sir! Told him last week actually. He was extremely excited. We have a really good group going there.”
