New Scout 4-star wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman adds Alabama offer to growing list

A few days after taking in Tuscaloosa for Alabama's initial spring practice Friday, four-star wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman received word the Crimson Tide offered him a scholarship. He details why it was big news.

The last 48 hours or so have been great to four-star Covington (Ga.) Newton wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman. He was not only elevated to four stars on Scout, but also added a major trio of offers from GeorgiaAuburn and national champion Alabama in the span. 

Impressing many at The MVP Camp Sunday, where he was named top overall performer, the rising-senior spent time in Tuscaloosa two days earlier as it opened up spring practice. 

"It was great, I enjoyed it," he said. "I've camped there and went to games, but I finally met (wide receivers) coach (Billy) Napier and talked about how he sees such an upside in me. 

"He's great, a really cool guy."

Three days later, another Tide assistant provided news he'd been anticipating. The scholarship offer.

"Coach (Jeremy) Pruitt informed me," Holloman said. "He said I'm a physical wide receiver with good ball skill and strong hands with the ability to make plays."

Adding the Alabama offer wasn't a small feat to the Scout 300 talent. 

"It's big," he said. "Knowing I'm capable of playing at the number one school in the nation, it's crazy. I'm extremely blessed but will keep up the work and turn all the doubters into believers." 

Holloman followed up the Georgia offer with a visit to Athens on Monday and he subsequently named a top six of Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Tennessee.
