Holliman talks Louisville decision

Gerod Holliman, who chose Louisville during the U.S. Army All-American game, spoke with Scout.com about why he chose Charlie Strong's Cardinals.

The four star 6'0 and 190-pound safety from Miami (FL) Miami Southridge high school adds to what is shaping up to be a fantastic class for Louisville in only Charlie Strong's second season.

"I told Louisville I was committing to them," Holliman said. "I think it's a better chance for me to see some early playing time. I have a great relationship with all the coaches and we have great chemistry together."

Even when it seemed like a long shot coach Hurtt kept the pressure on Holliman and it paid off in the end.

"Coach Hurtt is the main reason that Louisville never left me because he always showed love and kept on me about how much they needed me. It really made the decision for me very easy."

Louisville fans are in for a real treat with this caliber of player over the next few years.

"The fans can expect a diverse safety that can do it all. I am a corner and a safety, whatever they need me to do I will do. I am coming in looking to do my thing. I am a ball hawking safety but I will come up and deliver a blow if a I need to."

Holliman has known for some time where he is going to play his college ball and he was more than ready to announce during the All-America game in San Antonio earlier today.

"It's been really tough because I am out here with Teddy Bridgewater and I want to whole world to know. Teddy and I have been together for a while and we have great chemistry as teammates."
