Covington, Ga.--A Scout 300 prospect and four-star wide receiver, Jeremiah Holloman from Newton High was on the Auburn campus Saturday to check out the Tigers and spend time with Coach Kodi Burns. Taking his first look at the campus and facilities in March, Holloman left his second trip feeling very good about Auburn.
“Today went great,” Holloman said. “I had a chance to get around campus and bring my parents back up there so they could see everything. They talked with Coach Burns and with the offensive coordinator (Rhett Lashlee). We walked around the facilities and what not. It just made me feel at home.”
Getting his parents on campus was one of the main reasons for Holloman’s trip this weekend. Already feeling very good about the Tigers, he said for him it was all about his family this time around.
“It wasn’t really about what I wanted to see because I had seen everything,” Holloman said. “It was about my parents getting a good impression about being there. That’s what I really wanted to happen. They really loved it and they’re really happy about it.”
One of the things that stands out about Auburn for Holloman is his bond with Burns. A young coach that exudes energy on the practice field and in recruiting, Burns knows Auburn very well and Holloman said he likes what he hears from the former Auburn quarterback and wide receiver.
“He’s a great person and I can really relate to him,” Holloman said. “He can help me become a better person on the field and off the field, just someone I can be able to go to at all times.”
A player that has seen his recruiting take off with a very strong camp season in the winter that carried over into the spring, Holloman said for him it has been a whirlwind of emotion with school after school offering him. Because of that he said it was important to step back and take a deep breath in the process.
“I just want to keep building relationships and furthering my education on different schools,” Holloman said. “At one point I had to take my time and start reevaluating schools. Just having more opportunities I had to take a chance to look at all of them.”
Georgia has been considered the leader for the former Michigan commitment with Tennessee and Auburn also in his top three schools, Holloman said now that he’s been to Auburn things are definitely taking a turn.
“Auburn is still in the top three,” Holloman said. “I’m really highly thinking about them being a school I decide to go to one day.”
Holloman said he plans to return to Auburn for Big Cat Weekend.
