The nation's top cornerback in the 2017 class has yet to produce any standout defensive highlights this season. It's hard to do that when opponents don't want to throw in your direction.
But on Friday night, Calabasas (Calif.) five-star Darnay Holmes had his first chance to impact the game on the defensive side. He read a stop route perfectly, broke on the pass and saw the ball floating into his hands. But when he couldn't hold onto the pass, dropping a potential pick-six interception.
"That's for sure a nightmare right there, man," Holmes said after the game. "I wasn't...I wasn't...I don't know how to explain that. That's something that I'm not going to forget. I'm going to for sure catch all the rest of those...for sure."
Holmes made up for the miss on the offensive side as he again lit up the defense with around 150 yards of receiving on six catches, including a 66-yard touchdown reception on the first offensive play of the game.
