Buffaloes add Colorado tackle to 2014 class

Doug Pensinger

Holland had planned to attend West Point but issues in the administrations

I'm a bit late on this one but the Buffaloes landed a big addition this past Monday to the previously complete 2014 class when Highlands Ranch offensive tackle Isaiah Holland signed a financial aid agreement to attend the University of Colorado this fall. He had originally planned on attending the U.S. Military Academy at West Point but was unable to enroll due to "unforeseen circumstances in the admissions process".

Holland's father was a defensive tackle under Bill McCartney from 1991-94. As a senior, he earned All-Colorado honors from both the Denver Post and Mile High Sports Magazine.  He started all 28 games over the course of his junior and senior seasons and helped Valor Christian to a pair of 5A state championships, as he did not allow a quarterback sack and had several touchdown and downfield blocks to go along with numerous pancakes.

Offensive line is a huge area of need for the Buffs and Holland gives Gary Bernardi a talented young piece to work with. Just as important, Colorado now has another in-state kid coming to Boulder as Mike MacIntyre and staff continue to try and close off the borders of the state.

Welcome aboard, Isaiah!

Notes: From Rivals ($): "The 6-foot-4, 315-pound Holland did not move back to Colorado from Germany until prior to his junior year of high school, and only has two years of organized football under his belt. While developing as an offensive tackle in 2012 and 2013, Holland blocked for Stanford signee Christian McCaffrey and helped Valor Christian to two state titles. He earned All-Colorado honors by both the Denver Post and Mile High Sports following his senior campaign."
