"We talked about how SMU is the right place for us to be, and the more I learn and find out about it, the more I like it. I'm supposed to talk to Coach Klemm later today and I'm looking forward to that. Hopefully, we'll talk about the bowl game."
Holloway faced Preston on the gridiron last year, but it was the first time they met off the field.
"We wanted to meet because Conner is about to leave to enroll at SMU," explained Holloway. "All of us California guys are bonding. We had hoped that Dontae Levingston would make it yesterday, but he wasn't able to.
"I had already met Devon; we actually work out together. It was just cool to get together and all meet like that."
