This past Saturday the University of Florida felt a whole lot better about their frosh star Grant Holloway. But let's be real, they already felt great that they landed this superstar.
In his first ever collegiate meet he stepped up like everyone in Virginia is used to seeing. He started the meet with a blazing 7.63 performance in the 60mH. That performance is just .10 off of his national record performance at New Balance Indoors last year but this time it was over 42" hurdles instead of 39".
That hurdle performance is the fastest pre-NCAA Championships time by a frosh since at least 2002 according to the stats team at the University of Florida.
If that wasn't enough, he followed that performance up with a 32.80 clocking in the 300m dash to now rank #3 all-time in the NCAA.
The real question is will he start jumping and doing multis as well? He leaped 25-11.75 last indoor season (see above video) and was the national indoor pentathlon champion last year with a US #2 all-time mark. Regardless though this kid is a special athlete and Team Va is being represented very well down in Florida now.
