Holloway, who was named defensive player of the year for his play in Germany last season, said the move is a step up for him professionally, as he will be playing for the first-tier professional league in Czechoslovakia.
"I leave Monday for Brno, which is the second largest city in the Czech Republic," he said.
Holloway was signed as the point guard for the Brno team, whose season starts in September and ends around June.
He declined to discuss the financial terms, saying it is a contractual requirement to not reveal the particulars, but said he was rewarded for his play in Germany, where he played for the Hanover Tigers.
Last season, Holloway finished second in his league in scoring, with 21 points a game, led in steals with two a game and was fifth in assists with five a game. He was also named to the first team all-star squad.
Holloway, 6' 2", 200-lbs, said he owes his development at point guard to the opportunities he took advantage of to learn about the position and to putting in a lot of time practicing.
"I've gotten better at it, just from having more experience and I'm doing it 80 percent of the game," he said.
Holloway said that work started during his days as a member of the Woodland Wildcats, adding he used to practice mornings before school.
"Coach (Mike) Tobin let me work early and I put a lot of hours in there," he said.
Holloway said despite how far he has come in the sport, he still finds himself working on his game.
"It reminds me of all those times when I used to practice at Woodland," he said.
After graduating from Woodland, Holloway took his game to Illinois State, a member of the Missouri Valley Conference. Holloway worked his way into the starting lineup for the Redbirds by the middle of his junior year. He started for them his senior year, too.
Holloway said his contract will bring new responsibilities and expectations.
"They were impressed with my ability to take over a game, my athletic ability, my ability to score and the fact I was defensive player of the year," he said. "I have tried to work out all summer and get prepared to meet their expectations."
He said he doesn't know much about his new team yet, even its name, but added that will change quickly once he relocates.
The move is part of his plan to simply become as good a ball player as he can be and see how far that takes him.
"I strive to play for the NBA every year and I try to improve myself," he said. "I figure if I don't make it to the NBA at least I get to see Europe while playing basketball. As long as I can keep playing basketball, I'm cool with that."
He added he has a long term goal of helping others learn to play the game to the best of their ability.
"I want to start a business to help kids play basketball in Bartow County one day," he said. "I hope to give back to the community."
The former Woodland star said he leaves Monday night and plans to return to the United States for the Christmas holidays.
