UA Game: Corey Holmes
Notre Dame wide receiver commit Corey Holmes may not have thrived in St. Thomas Acquinas' offense his senior year, due to his school's tendency to run the ball often, but Holmes showed on Sunday why his name his mentioned as one of the best wide receivers in the class of 2014. "Today went great," Holmes said. "I did everything I needed to do, and I accomplished what I came here to do. I ran my routes greet and caught the ball well." Holmes burned Team Nitro safety Jamal Adams (undeclared) on a fly route, making Adams fall to the ground. Holmes flashed his speed and his polish on day one, running impressive go routes and being a popular target for the quarterbacks. "I had some good competition today, but I did well," Holmes said. "Tony Brown (undeclared), J.C. Jackson (Florida), they were all good. It definitely gives me confidence playing against those guys. I want to carry that confidence all through out the week." Holmes is enthusiastic about how well he'll fit into Notre Dame's offense. "They're a pass first offense, and just the type of offense I want to be a part of," Holmes said. "I think I'll do really well there." Holmes' roommate this week in Orlando is fellow Notre Dame commit defensive lineman Andrew Trumbetti. "Andrew is a great football player and a great person," Holmes said. "We're having a great time so far." Asked what his main goal is for his time in Orlando, and Holmes responded that consistency is his main priority. "I want to show consistency day in and day out," Holmes said. "I want to show that I'm one of the best wide receivers out here."
