Alpharetta native makes Final Four with South Carolina

Red-shirt junior forward Jarrell Holliman hasn't played much for South Carolina's men's basketball team this season, but he's still part of the roster that led the Gamecocks to their first appearance in the Final Four of the NCAA men's basketball tournament.

The 6-foot-7 Alpharetta native has played in 15 games for the Gamecocks this season during their run to college basketball’s biggest stage. He last tallied minutes for Frank Martin’s side in their regular season finale, a five-point loss to Ole Miss.

Holliman last scored points for South Carolina in its Jan. 24 win over Auburn, where he tallied two points, two rebounds and a steal in five minutes of play.

Before South Carolina, Holliman played a year of college ball at Division III Elmhurst College in Illinois. At Alpharetta High School, he earned varsity letters for basketball and track and field.
