While attending Norte Vista High School in Riverside, California, he earned first-team all-CIF Southern Section eastern honors the past three years. In his senior season, he was named to the Cal-Hi Sports All-State second team.

Holly is expected to come into to program and contribute immediately. However, he will have tough competition from returning starter Paul Harris and backup Diocemy St. Juste.

Arizona State had his commitment early on but that fell through. In the end, Holly was also offered scholarships by Colorado State, San Diego State, San Jose State and Louisville.
