"I am going to Florida," said Holcombe. "I still have not told the Gator coaches. I will when they call. I has been a hard decision. But there is just too much opportunity for me at Florida. I can play early and I have a chance to start. Florida has a tradition of winning and I want a ring. It was hard to say no to Auburn because I have always liked them. But after sitting down and thinking about it, Florida is the best shot for me."
Over the weekend, Holcombe took official visits to both Auburn and LSU. he visited Florida last weekend. Holcombe will sign with Florida on Wednesday and report to Bowl Practice December 26. Holcombe, from Booneville, Mississippi, is 6-3 and 281 pounds. He went to Mobile (Ala.) Davidson High School before attending NE Mississippi Junior College.
