Layfeatte Holloman visits Mississippi State

Former Newton (GA) High School wide receiver Layfeatte Holloman is taking unofficial visits in the hopes of landing a spot on a roster.

Holloman is in a unique situation. A 2015 graduate, he found out late in the recruiting process that he was academically eligible. He still could have gone the junior college route but decided not to.

"I sat out a year because I didn't want to go juco, I wanted to go D-I," said Holloman.

During the year he sat out he continued to train.

"I have kept in shape and maintained my speed by continuing to train," said Holloman, who is 6-foot-2, 195 pounds and has run a 4.5 forty yard dash.

Holloman, whose brother is highly thought of class of 2017 wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman, is taking unofficial visits while his brother camps at colleges.

"I visited Mississippi State today, Tennessee yesterday and Auburn Saturday," said Holloman. "I've also visited Georgia a couple of times."

He liked what he saw at Mississippi State.

"I love it at Mississippi State," said Holloman. "I love how it is family at Mississippi State. It is a great school and has great academics."

The coaches have all expressed interest in him. They just want to make sure he has everything in order before they make a decision on him.

"The coaches are telling me to get everything squared away academically and they will try to recruit me," said Holloman.
