Michigan State PG Tre Holloman set for big role with Spartan hoops

Incoming freshman Tre Holloman knows what it means to play basketball for Michigan State and Tom Izzo. This season he’s trying to show he has what it takes to be a reliable offensive option, according to Nathaniel Bott of the Lansing State Journal.

Holloman recently played in the Moneybag Pro-Am, a summer preseason tournament, where he just scored 25 points. Holloman uses the tournament as an opportunity to develop his game and improve. Right now he’s trying to do everything a playmaker should do. Holloman was a former 4-star PG of 247Sports Composite.

“Coming in and playing good defense, giving energy, taking care of the basketball and pushing it and finding open guys, just making plays really,” Holloman said. “Then once I’m in a groove the ball starts to drop, so watch to see that this year too.”

The transition hasn’t been easy for Holloman, but the Michigan State community has welcomed him with open arms, he says. He also said veterans like AJ Hoggard and Tyson Walker made it much easier for him. Looks like Holloman is already on his way.

“It’s been a change, but I have guys like AJ and Tyson who have been like big brothers to me,” Holloman said. “I’ve put on weight, I think I’ve put on about 15 pounds, and people here love us and want autographs and it’s been a really fun environment so far.”
