"It was real big," S.C. Ravens coach Dion Bethea said. "Mike's a family guy and he wanted his family and his coaches to see him play. South Carolina was a perfect fit for him. It's a great move and I think it will get everybody back on track so they know its ok to go to South Carolina."
Bethea raves about Holmes' talent – at both ends of the floor.
"Michael brings a lot of intensity, especially on the defensive end. Coach Odom will let the kids really get up and down the floor. He loves the way they play with that open floor game. I think Mike is going to give them a presence inside defensively and offensively."
