Holcombe Names Leader

[MEDIA:32874]Junior College defensive tackle <B>Eric Holcombe</B> names a leader. This weekend, he took two official visits, one to Auburn and then to LSU.

Eric Holcombe has a tough decision to make and D-Day for the Junior College defensive tackle standout is rapidly approaching. Holcombe, from NE Mississippi Junior College, must decide on Wednesday where to sign his letter of intent. There are now three teams involved.

"This weekend, I visited both Auburn and LSU," said Holcombe. "Auburn was cool and I really like it there. It's the home-state team for me because I am from Alabama (Mobile). They support the heck out of you if you stay in-state.

"I got back from Auburn and went to LSU for the day and I just got off the plane. LSU, like Florida, is a place where they need defensive tackles and I could play early. Right now, if I had to say, Florida is my favorite. Tomorrow, I will shut everything down and I hope to make a decision my tomorrow night. I will sign on Wednesday."
