Holiday is currently undecided, considering schools such as Arizona, Arizona State, Florida State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas A&M, UCLA, USC, and Washington.

Scout Eval: Holiday has great size for a corner and fits the mold of the bigger defensive backs more and more colleges are looking for. He runs well, has very good ball skills and plays with toughness and swagger. He's physical in run support and is a solid tackler. He has the frame to grow in to a safety down the line but corner is definitely his desired position and where his value is highest. - Greg Biggins

Quotable: "I'm just real focused on our season right now so I haven't gotten around to setting up my trips. I need to get the thumbs up from my coach but the season takes up so much time and that's where all my focus is at right now so more than likely, I'll get on that after November." - Dechaun Holiday

Those selected will play in the annual East vs. West match-up on Saturday, Jan. 3, 2015, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The game will be televised live on NBC at 1 p.m. EST and will feature the nation’s top 90 high school football players.  

“Dechaun and all of the 2015 U.S. Army All-American Bowl players were selected not only for their ability on the football field, but also because they demonstrate mental, emotional and physical toughness – similar strengths to those of our Army Soldiers,” said Mark S. Davis, deputy assistant secretary of the Army for marketing. “We are pleased to welcome these talented athletes to this year’s showcase of athleticism, teamwork and excellence and we congratulate each of them on their selection.”
