DE Jalyn Holmes Profile
Jalyn Holmes was one of 22 players from Lake Taylor High School in Norfolk, Va. to attend the Clemson camp. And he's one of a few players from his team that have picked up an offer from the Tigers.
"It was good, real good. I liked the campus and I liked the coaches," he told CUTigers about the Dabo Camp experience.
What stood out?
"The stadium, the rock that they touch, seeing that was the best part."
Holmes enjoyed working with defensive ends coach Marion Hobby.
"He's a real intense guy. He reminds me of my coach a lot. It was good. I like how he coaches. He puts a lot of intensity into it," Holmes said.
They spent time with one another away from the field, too.
"We'd be on the golf cart and talk, he'd joke with people. I can relate to him a lot," Holmes said.
Clemson offered him before Holmes before the camp began, but he didn't know about it until he arrived for camp. Along with Clemson, East Carolina, Illinois, Maryland, Miami, North Carolina, N.C. State, Penn State, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Virginia Tech have offered.
He's happy to have an offer from Clemson.
"I've always liked watching them, like with C.J. Spiller," Holmes said.
As a sophomore, he had 85 tackles, 17 tackles for loss and five sacks.
