Coastal Carolina star baller signs with Three Eye Sports after being suspended from Coastal indefinitely for eligibility issue.
Holloway told The Sun News on Thursday that with the help of the agency, he expects to work out for NBA teams at pre-draft camps and would also consider playing overseas.
"After all this, I felt like I could play pro," he said. "I've been feeling I could play pro this whole year. I wasn't going to consider it until after my senior year. Unfortunately, I have to go early."
CCU athletic director Hunter Yurachek said through associate athletic director for media relations Mike Cawood that he had not seen any official paperwork yet but that Holloway had indicated to the athletic administration his intentions to sign with an agent. Because the NCAA investigation remains ongoing, he could not comment further.
