Hard-work, consistency, and determination are the key ingredients to the success of many athletes. Class of 2023 F Ronald Holland of Duncanville High School near Dallas, TX has consistently utilized these traits to position himself as a standout player not only on the basketball court but in the classroom as well. Even with all the sudden attention that comes with being a special talent, Holland remains humble and takes it all in stride. 
Standing at 6’8, Holland’s athleticism is what makes him so special. He has unbelievable instincts for a player his size on the offensive end of the floor. He has a natural feel for the game and does not force the issue and therefore he has so much production on or off the ball. Holland is a gifted ball handler who can create off the dribble with either hand. He is a natural slasher who does not need much room to blow by defenders and finish at the rim strong. He has developed the skill set to play multiple positions and this gives him the advantage over others in his class. While still improving his three-point shot, he has begun to knock the three down more consistently and defenses now must play him honest. He possesses the ability push the ball in the open court and create easy opportunities for his teammates in transition.
Defensively, he plays the passing lanes very well and this allows him to get steals and play in the open court. His football instincts give him the edge in terms of toughness and physicality. He can switch off and guard multiple positions because of his ability to keeps people in front of him and is particularly good on the defensive glass. He is a natural leader, and his aggression and leadership on the floor is what makes him such a great teammate and a person that loves to win. Although many on the national level have put a major focus on the class of 2022, Holland is one of the special talents that warrants schools getting in on him early. 

Although it is early in his recruitment, he still has gained a lot of attention and gained offers to play at the likes of Memphis, SMU, and Texas A&M respectfully. Houston, Oregon, Texas, Texas Tech, and UCLA have also extended offers. We fully expect for this list to get a major bump as we head into winter school ball as well as next spring where he can display his talents against some the better players nationally in his class.
