June 15 was the first day that coaches could directly contact class of 2022 recruits. Our “Names to Know” series provides a quick look at IU basketball recruiting targets as their names emerge on the trail.
Trejuan Holloman is a point guard from Minnesota.
Indiana’s interest in Holloman emerged publicly last week when Jake Weingarten of Stock Risers tweeted about schools that made direct contact.

According to the 247Sports Composite, Holloman is the No. 81 overall player in the class of 2022, and the No. 18 point guard.
Hailing from Minneapolis, Holloman attends Cretin Durham Hall in St. Paul, Minn. He averaged 10.8 points, 9.4 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 2.8 steals a game for the Raiders as a sophomore. Cretin Durham Hall had advanced to state before the season was canceled.
Holloman’s film shows a true point guard who knows how to run a team and see the floor. He is also a talented perimeter shooter, converting at a greater than 37 percent rate from behind the arc as a sophomore. Although he plays with some flash, Holloman only averaged 2.1 turnovers per game to go with his more than 9 assists per outing.
The 6-foot-1 Holloman also plays safety for the football team. For AAU basketball Holloman plays for Howard Pulley on the Nike EYBL circuit. He played up two levels (17U) during the 2019 season.
Thus far Holloman’s offer list includes Baylor, Iowa, Marquette, Minnesota, Nebraska, Michigan State, Texas and Wisconsin. IU has been involved long before June 15 but has not offered to this point.
Indiana assistant coach Tom Ostrom hails from Minnesota and he is the primary recruiter for IU in that area.
