Holuba Is Keeping His Options Opened
Feb 19, 2013
Bergen Catholic DL Kurt Holuba
Rutgers was the first school to offer Bergen Catholic standout Kurt Holuba. But it would not be long before more schools joined in the pursuit for his services. Currently, he holds offers from Boston College, Syracuse, Massachusetts, Harvard, Penn and Princeton.
The fact that both of his brothers played football in the Ivy Leagues makes Harvard, Penn and Princeton an incredibly attractive option.
“The Ivy League is an option but I would like to see how it plays out. My parents will always like for me to go Ivy but we will see where the process takes me”, he told StateOfRutgers.com. “I am expecting to get a 2100 SAT score which should get me in. They do not give full scholarships but provide need based aid”.
Academics will be a major part in Holuba’s final decision. As a result, he is focused on schools with a very good academic reputation along with a strong football tradition.
“I get a lot of letters from Penn State, Maryland and Stanford. But academic swill play a big role in my recruitment. So I am very interested in Stanford and many of the different academic football playing schools’, he said.
Although Rutgers does not totally match the academic profile that Holuba is seeking, the fact that they were the first to offer him a scholarship really caught his attention.
“Rutgers was my first offer and the first school to pay attention to me. That is special to me”, he stated.
Currently, Holuba is on break in Florida. He will take the opportunity to visit Miami to start his spring and summer trips to schools.
“I will be visiting the University of Miami while I am here for Spring break. During the summer, I will be going to the Notre Dame and Stanford camps”, he said.
Similar to many prospects, Holuba will take his time in making a decision and has no timetable.
“I have no idea of when I will make a decision because I do not know who will offer and when. But I will get a better idea as the process goes on.”
