"Extremely blessed to receive an offer from the University of Miami," announced Jeremiah Holloman over the weekend.
At 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, Holloman is a 2017 wide receiver prospect from Newton HS in Georgia. He is widely considered one of the state's premier players at his position.
Holloman started getting scholarships last fall but decided to end the process early when he made a December commitment to Michigan. When schools kept recruiting and offering him, he decided to back off that decision in February when he opened things back up.
Schools like Georgia, Alabama, Auburn, South Carolina, and Tennessee came in with spring offers to the talented pass-catcher. He's been to Georgia on several occasions and is being recruited by former UM offensive coordinator James Coley there. The Bulldogs are considered the team to beat but the Canes are now in the mix.
Here are Holloman's Nike numbers from the spring:
40-inch vertical jump
38-foot power toss
As you can see, he's a big kid and doesn't have blazing speed but he has good quickness and outstanding leaping ability. Those are some of the reasons he's being recruited nationally. He put his name on the recruiting map with a strong junior season that ended with 32 catches for 632 yards and seven touchdowns.
The Hurricanes signed several wide receivers in its 2016 class and they have three more committed in 2017. The fact that they're still offering more means they still want more.
