The highly touted athlete has been heavily recruited across the country already, and I can’t see that slowing down any time soon. Holmes brings an element of his game that you can’t coach (speed), and he can play both sides of the ball at a high level. Teams are looking at bringing him in to play running back, wide receiver, and defensive back.
The Cocoa high prospect recently visited Florida State for junior day, but doesn’t have any visits planned for the future. Currently he has 22 offers and they all meant a lot to him, as he says they gave him an opportunity to excel at the next level. He currently doesn’t have any leaders in his recruitment, and wants to commit to his school of choice by the summer.
Florida State and Miami are the Florida schools that are most involved in his recruitment. Asked what he likes about both schools, he said “The campuses, the atmosphere of the schools and the coaching staffs.” A school could separate there self in his recruitment by acting like a family to me and putting him in best spot to shine.
Miami recently picked up a pledge from running back Don chaney, but Holmes stated it doesn’t affect his recruitment. He noted wherever he goes he knows he has to compete. With Miami also receiving a commitment from Ladarius Tennison, which is a close friend of Holmes. Asked if that helps Miami with his recruitment, and he stated “It does because at least I’ll know someone that is there and that has the same goals as me.”
The dynamic of a player that Holmes is will give his team of choice an instant impact. Holmes is a play maker on both sides of the ball, and expect that to stay the same at the college level.
