The importance of having impactful wide receivers in the current era of college football is at an all-time high, and many teams are focusing on one four-star Peach State talent who has risen rapidly.
Jeremiah Holloman, from Covington, had a stellar junior season and became recognized as a top-tier recruit nationwide. Prior to his junior season, he did not have a Division I offer, but in a blink of an eye, he was being invited to invitationals such as “The Opening” and gaining interest from many Power 5 programs like Georgia and other SEC programs. Holloman relishes these opportunities and uses them as chances to improve his game.
“I get to have the opportunity to work against the best in the country, and it’s a true blessing.” Holloman said. “All in all, I get to improve my craft.”
All of this spotlight placed on Holloman raises the constant question of where he will end up to continue his college career. After a recent de-commitment from Michigan, he wants to truly leave the race open for quite a while, potentially until National Signing Day in February.
Never miss a local story.
“(The recruiting process) has been great, and I’m really enjoying it,” Holloman said. “As of now I don’t have any leaders, I just want to take more time to make sure I’m making the right decision. I do not want to rush the process.”
Holloman focuses frequently on Twitter on about Auburn, Georgia and Tennessee, discussing the future of those programs in a positive sense. He believes all three provide an unmatched opportunity to progress in his career.
“Respectively, each program is headed in a positive direction,” Holloman said. “They all have a huge upside, and all of the coaches would push me to be the best player I can be.”
Holloman spoke specifically about Georgia and believes the Bulldogs might be legitimate contenders on-the-field and in the recruiting ranks under first-year head coach Kirby Smart and his staff.
“I feel like they are definite contenders for a national championship in these upcoming years,” Holloman said. “They are building something special, especially (with recruiting) and the chance of establishing in-state commitments.”
So there’s a waiting game to see where Holloman ends up as he voices respect for multiple programs. But he is focused on his senior season at Newton and improving his game.
“I just need to work hard, that’s all,” Holloman said. “As long as I’m exposed to colleges and content with my work ethic, I’ll be satisfied.”
