There was a rumor circulating around message boards that four-star wide receiver/cornerback Jamere Holland (6-1, 175, 4.35) from Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft committed to Mississippi State.
"No I don't believe he did," Taft offensive coordinator Derwin Henderson said. "I just got off the phone with his host, James Lewis and he told me he didn't."
"Mississippi State wants him to but I don't think he has," Henderson said. "Jamere is supposed to visit USC sometime this week and he is scheduled for Washington this coming weekend."
Holland has already visited Oregon and Arizona and he had good trips there. The word on the street is that USC and Oregon are the teams to beat. But until there is a concrete committal and he's done taking trips, it's anybody's ball game.
Holland finished the season with 55 catches for 1,188 yards and 17 receiving touchdowns while averaging 21.6 yards per catch. He also scored three touchdowns on special teams and scored one rushing touchdown. Holland led Taft in scoring with 132 points.
