Holiday adapting well

A player who seems to be making a strong early impression is freshman swingman Justin Holiday.
I wrote about him a little in this story Friday that had some glowing comments from UW coach Lorenzo Romar about his play.
I also talked a little with Holiday, who said he thinks he’s fitting in just fine.
“It’s going well,” he said.
When I asked him to describe his playing style, he said “I do whatever it takes to win. Playing some defense or getting a loose ball, hustling, making good passes, finding someone.”
He’s listed at 6-6, 170 but said he’s up to 175 after adding 11 pounds over the summer.
“I need to get a little stronger,” he said. “If I can get to 180 as soon as possible that would be good. I think I can get to more than that and still stay fast.”
Justin said he thinks the entire freshman class will make an impact this season.
“We brought in some good players,” he said. “They might not seem like they are ranked that high, but we have good players who are all athletic and long and made for this offense and this defense.”
I also asked Justin about his brother, Jrue. he said Jrue is still planning to sign with UCLA next month but that the two “don’t talk much about that.”
