Big Mississippi Athlete Sets 1st 2 Visits

Tim Holloway, 6-4, 215, of Seminary Attendance Center is one of the top running backs in the state of Mississippi, although he is likely to play another position in college. Holloway has set two official visits and will take an unofficial visit to Tuscaloosa this weekend to attend the Iron Bowl.

"I have set up an official visit with Mississippi State on January 14-16, and Southern Miss on December 17-19. I will probably set up visits with LSU, Auburn, and Alabama. I am going to the Alabama/Auburn game, this weekend, for an unofficial visit," said Tim Holloway.

A few schools are recruiting Holloway harder than others.

"Mississippi State, Southern Miss, and LSU are recruiting me the hardest. An Alabama coach came here and watched some film on me, but they have not offered. I haven't really talked to Auburn that much. I don't think they want me as bad as the other schools. I don't have any favorites right now." 

The star running back likes several SEC schools.

Mississippi State: "They have good coaches and good players to be around. They like me more as a person over there than just a football player."

Southern Miss: "They also have good people. They want me to come there to play ball. It is close to home, so my family could come watch me. They are in Conference USA and I would have a chance to play for a C-USA championship. The coaches seem cool."

LSU: "They are good. They have a lot of players they rotate. I want to go somewhere I will be able to start. I want to carry the ball a lot."

Alabama: "I don't really know too much about them. I want to talk with their coaches and players when I go to the game this weekend. I want to see what they are all about."

Several coaches are staying in contact with Holloway.

"I am talking to Coach Rodriguez (Southern Miss), Coach Kitchens and Coach Croom (Mississippi State), Coach Muschamp and Coach Saban (LSU), and I have talked to an Alabama coach," Holloway said.

Seminary defeated Hinds in the second round of the play-offs and will travel to Lumberton for the quarterfinals.

"We are still in it. We beat Hinds the other night, 34-20. I had a good game. I had 221 yards on fourteen carries with four touchdowns. We play at Lumberton on Friday night. My season totals are 1,741 yards rushing with twenty-eight touchdowns."
