Holliman headed to prep school

Gerod Holliman, one of Louisville's top 2011 signees, is headed to prep school this fall. Will the former four-star safety rejoin the Cardinals after a stint at Milford Academy? Louisville assistant Clint Hurtt updated InsideTheVille.com about the situation.

Gerod Holliman, one of Louisville's top 2011 recruits, will attend prep school instead of enrolling at UofL this fall. A former U.S. Army All-American, Holliman came up just short of the required standardized test score needed to qualify for freshman eligibility.

"Gerod is not going to qualify and he's going to Milford Academy in New York," Louisville recruiting coordinator Clint Hurtt told InsideTheVille.com during an extensive interview Tuesday. "Gerod has to bump up his test score, but we fully expect him to re-join us in January."

By attending prep school, Holliman, a four-star safety, would retain full eligibility if he enrolls at Louisville next January.

"He's gung-ho about being here and can't wait to get here," said Hurtt. "It's a tough thing for him to accept but he looks at it as an opportunity to improve and mature. He still wants to be a Cardinal."

Holliman, a former teammate of current UofL freshman defensive back Andrew Johnson, chose Louisville over Ole Miss, West Virginia and Miami.
