OL Matt Holmes
6-3, 290, 5.3
Strom Thurmond High School
Johnston, South Carolina
The 6-3, 290 pound prospect is still waiting on his first offer, but several top programs are showing early interest. "Wake Forest, Georgia and Clemson are all showing interest," Holmes told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.
The talented lineman played offensive tackle for Strom Thurmond last season. "My strengths are my ability to get down the field. I am good at getting on the linebacker."
"I want to work on my speed next year. I run a 5.3 now. I also want to work on my overall blocking ability."
When asked if he has any early favorites, Holmes responded, "No, not right now. I want to wait and see who offers."
The camp plans are starting to take shape for the South Carolina standout. "I am going to Clemson for sure and probably Georgia. I will probably go to junior day at Georgia and camp at Clemson this summer," said Holmes.
Holmes plans to wait until next season before deciding where he will attend college. "I will probably hold off. I want to wait and see who offers next year. I also want to take my visits."
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding offensive lineman from South Carolina, right up through signing day 2006.
