Hollingsworth is a a 6-foot-2 guard at Dunbar High School in Lexington, and led the Bulldogs to a State championship as a junior. He is a 3-star prospect according to 247sports.com and was receiving interest from numerous Division I programs heading into his senior season. But Western Kentucky already offered Hollingsworth, and head coach Rick Stansbury’s resume was solid enough to earn a commitment and National Letter of Intent from Hollingsworth on the first day of the early signing period.
