This from our Brandon Speck, who does some free lance work with the Memphis Grizzlies. Murphy Holloway, the Rebels’ career-leading rebounder, has a tryout today with the local NBA team. LINK.
Holloway’s flirtation with the NFL was short-lived as he was cut by the Ravens just days after they signed him to a free agent deal then saw him in a rookies mini-camp.
In talks with us prior to being cut by the Ravens, Holloway had an all or nothing attitude about the big leagues — in either sport. He was reluctant to try a CFL path or another lower professional league to increase his NFL stock. He was also reluctant to play pro basketball overseas but didn’t close the door on that idea either.
That might be where this is headed unless Holloway has a very productive day today.
