OL Discusses UM Camp

UM offensive line coach Art Kehoe often likes to evaluate a player during his summer camp to get a better understanding of not only how much talent the kid has but also his coachability factor, how tough he is mentally, and how well he's able to pick up on new techniques.

One of the players UM evaluated this spring and invited to camp was Clearwater, Fla. standout Jarrod Holt. The 6-6, 305-pounder took in this month's camp and came away impressed.

"The whole experience was great," Holt said. "We went through various drills and I think the whole day was a success. I'm very glad I went."

Holt said the highlight of his experience was learning from Kehoe.

"I learned a lot," he said. "Coach Kehoe is a great guy. He's real funny at times but he knows how to be serious too. He really knows what he's doing out there and I can see why so many people want to play for him. He's just a great guy."

Holt said he was hoping to impress the UM coaches enough to receive a scholarship offer.

"I talked to the coaches again and they said they'll definitely be in touch with me," he said. "I'm hoping I showed them enough. I just have to wait and see what happens from here."

Holt, who claims close to 20 written scholarship offers.

He's still wide open with the recruiting process and wants to see where his other offers will come from before making a late summer decision. He's hoping Miami will be one of those options.

"They have a great program there," he said. "The facilities are nice, the coaches are great, and they're always very successful. It would be a good opportunity for me but I still have to see what they're going to do. Hopefully I'll have a lot of different options."

Holt is a full academic qualifier.
