Evaluation notes: Jalen Holston is a 5-foot-11, 202 pound running back out of Stockbridge (Ga.). Holston is a strong running back who runs with authority and power. He does not do a lot of dancing around, but when he gets the ball, he hits the hole, he gets up the field and he does not play around. He is a decisive runner. He sticks his foot in the ground and goes. He has a great frame, he shows good balance and he can get those yards after initial contact. He is not a back with a lot of wiggle, but a back who gets downhill in a hurry. He is an athlete who has also shined at linebacker on the next level and he runs with that defensive mentality. Holston is a back who can run, catch and make the big play. He has the ability to see the field on the next level.
Recruiting notes: Holston is committed to Virginia Tech.
