Aaron Holiday is an athletic, skilled combo guard that may have a good set of all-around skills.  He can shoot and score the basketball, and he can really knock down threes from beyond the arc.  Holiday also excels at attacking the basket, as he can throw down a dunk in transition.

Plus, he also has some playmaking and defensive skills, as he can collect assists and steals for his team, and he can get stops on the defensive end.  However, Holiday also can be a bit turnover and foul prone, and he has less than ideal size to play the point at the next level.

​Right now, Holiday may likely project to be a borderline first round pick.  He had a solid junior season and while he had a few less than stellar games this year, he could end up being a solid role player in the NBA.
