Notre Dame Transfer WR Corey Holmes talks Canes

Back in 2014, St. Thomas Aquinas WR Corey Holmes shut his recruitment down and decided to sign with Notre Dame. Fast forward three years later, the once 4 Star, Under Armor All American has decided to transfer from Notre Dame and open his recruiting process back up. He talks to CanesInSight about why he decided to transfer.

"The season was OK," Holmes said. "It was my first true season being involved in the offense."

"I wish I would of saw more opportunities, but that's why I feel like I can take advantage of this opportunity of transferring and get those opportunities I wanted at Notre Dame, somewhere else."

Holmes played in 12 games for Notre Dame this season -- he had 11 receptions for 96 yards, while the opportunities weren't there for him, he explains that playing time wasn't the only factor in this decision.

"The relationship I had with the coaches --Ii felt that if I wasn't going to have a good relationship with the coaches, I wasn't going to get anywhere in my career at Notre Dame," said Holmes.

"The culture believe it or not had a big factor in my decision to transfer. I felt like my whole time there, it just wasn't a good fit for me."

Holmes was a highly ranked recruit coming out of high school, with offers from schools like Miami, Alabama, Oklahoma, USC and other, but there's only one school from the past that's still recruiting him.

"North Carolina, Miami, Marshall, Kentucky and Wake Forest are the school recruiting me right now," he said.

Being from St. Thomas Aquinas HS, the local school has always held a special place inside his heart.

"It would be a blessing," said Holmes. "It would be real nice for me to come home and play for my hometown team and wear the orange and green."

"They showed me a good amount of love coming out of high school," he added.

"I wish I would of considered them more when I was in high school and could of took a couple of visits to the campus and stuff."

While Holmes played some 2000 miles away, he has a special relationship with Miami WR coach Ron Dugans.

"What's funny about it, Coach Dugans when he was at USF actually gave me my first offer, so it's really cool that he's at Miami and there's a chance i could player for the coach that was the first to believe in my athletic abilities."

I wish I was a little bit taller I wish I was a baller I wish I had a girl..

Yea, pass. Let him go to Marshall. You gave the finger to the hometown school, failed and aren't very good. No need to throw these kids a life raft after telling us to F ourselves. Especially marginal talents

Golden was the coach...understandable
It gets old after a while if you actually have interest in us before give us a chance then don't come crawling back when you failed before like we're your jilted ex gf
 
Why not just sign out of high school? Nah go to Wake Forest. If you weren't good enough to see the field at ND you ain't good enough here.
 
Given that this appears to be a CIS-sanctioned article, "could've" and "should've" are the contractions for "could have" and "should have."

"Could of" or "should of" may sound similar, but they are always incorrect.

Marginal player but he gonna be hungry. Just don't know if he got that dog in him.

We are low on numbers and this could be a good fit for both parties, why not take him? We have no depth, dude sees the field first day
 
Looks like the macho Canes fans have taken over this thread.



Considering the lack of depth at WR, sign him up.
