2014 WR Holmes Talks Miami Offer

2014 WR Holmes Talks Miami Offer

Peter Ariz
Already with offers from some of the top programs in the country such as Florida and Michigan, 2014 WR Corey Holmes from St. Thomas Aquinas landed another huge offer today, this one from the University of Miami. The offer came at today's junior day.

"Everybody was sitting down and eating lunch and Coach D'Onofrio sat down with my dad while I was sitting with some of my teammates that had come down. They called me over and Coach D'Onofrio informed me that I had an offer from the University of Miami."

The offer wasn't necessarily a surprise to Holmes, but it's still significant to him.

"I was kind of expecting it because prior to today I had talked to Coach Golden and D'Onofrio and they were real excited that I was coming down today. They were showing signs of the offer, so I wasn't surprised, but I was very excited."

How does this now affect his status with Miami?

"It bumps them up in interest level because now I can involve them more in the recruiting process and start putting them in the mix more to pay attention to who they're getting and stuff like that."

It was a new experience for Holmes today, as it was his first time getting an up-close look at the Miami campus.

"I really just enjoyed getting on campus and being able to see the facilities and all of that. I had really only been there for a basketball game before and a football camp so I really didn't get to see much of the campus. I also enjoyed talking to some players like Jelani Hamilton who went to my high school, Phillip Dorsett, Deon Bush, and Tracy Howard for a while."

Like most STA kids he sounds like he has a good head on his shoulders
 
I know ND is up there with him. I would assume FSU is on him, who else is there?
 
if we land moten we land holmes or the other way around
 
Sounds like a kid who's clearly concerned with who's on board, who's being recruited, and what that means for him. Honestly, I'd prefer for him to be the type who doesn't give a **** who we're getting because he's 6' 2", runs a 4.4 with a 4.15 shuttle and has a 35+ vertical. Anyway, didn't like that quote, but I understand.

Like I mentioned on the other thread, despite his absurd combine numbers, I'd like to see a little more from him in terms of polish. He's got all the tools to be great.

He may have not meant it as in who we're recruiting at his position, but what other top recruits we're getting. Maybe he wants to know that this team will be good for the future because he wants to play on a good team. That's just one other way to look at it.

I'm not saying you're wrong, because it definitely could be taken the way you had it, just figured I'd put out one other possible explanation.

@Pete - how many WRs do u think will be in the WR class?

Fair enough.
 
Probably 2 - we only have Allen Hurns as a Sr.

Lane, Holmes, Dixon...I want all 3. Rudolph can play WR or DB, and that McCrary kid from Coral Reef is a baller as well.

Wow, what part specifically gave you that indication? I read it three times after seeing your post and can't find it.
