Holmes ready to commit?
Wide receiver Corey Holmes of Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas visited Notre Dame for the fourth time this weekend. His entire family accompanied him on the trip to South Bend. "My family loved it," Holmes said. "It was my dad's fourth time seeing it as well, and it was my mom and sister's second time. It was a great visit as it always is to Notre Dame." Speculation was swirling all weekend if Holmes would pull the trigger for the Irish. "I want to see UCLA before I do anything," Holmes said. "In the conversations I had with the coaches, that was brought up, but I want to wait until after my visit to UCLA on July 8. That will determine if I'm ready to commit somewhere, or if I will take it into the fall." "The staff just reminded me how much they want me and how well I fit into their system and what they try to do," Holmes added. "They want to take two wide receivers in this class and they want me to be one of them." Holmes was able to meet Irish commits in the 2014 class that were also on site for the weekend. "DeShone Kizer was really cool, and so was Elijah Hood," Holmes said. "I could see myself with those guys. I got to hang out with the 2015 guys quite a bit too." On his fourth visit to campus, was there anything unique Holmes experienced this time? "The highlight was how much they showed around my mom and sister," Holmes said. "They really enjoyed themselves. I think they really like Notre Dame as much as I do." Holmes is a four-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 33 in the class of 2014.
