Holmes Staying Patient

The Roseville (Calif.) Oakmont receiver, Justin Holmes, is patiently waiting for his first offer...

Roseville (Calif.) Oakmont receiver Justin Holmes was one of the sleepers at the NLA Elite 7on7.

And while the 6-3, 195-pounder doesn't have an offer yet, a handful of schools are expressing interest in him.

"I'm hearing from a couple of schools like UCLA, San Diego State, Cal, Utah and Colorado," said Holmes.

And a few more Pac-12 schools are ones Holmes would like to hear more from.

"I like a lot of the schools from back east but I would like to hear from USC, Oregon and Oregon State some," said Holmes.

A versatile two-way threat, Holmes also plays safety, offense is where he wants to be.

"All the schools want me as a receiver and that's really what I want to play," said Holmes. "I play safety, but offense is my primary position. Calvin Johnson is my favorite player and who I watch."

Holmes said one school stands out the most.

"UCLA has probably been my dream school for the longest time," said Holmes.

Carrying a 3.5, Holmes will take the SAT and ACT in the spring.

He'll be at the Oakland NFTC in May.
