The 6'6, 260-lb senior says there was not one specific reason, but rather a feeling he had about the school.
"I chose GVSU because I felt like it would be the best school for me. There isn't really a single thing I can pinpoint it on, but it's just an overall gut feeling. GVSU has proven that they are a great school in regards to their staff, tradition, and history."
Playing as a true freshman is extremely rare at GVSU, and Jolly knows that going in, and has a good idea of what to expect.
"I will most likely be redshirted my freshmen year. I don't know exactly when I will be seeing the field, but I'm sure that will be left up to me with the help of the coaches putting me in the best position for success."
