Cincinnati a big offer for Holloman
Auburn Hills (Mich.) Avondale three-star running back Joshuwa Holloman reeled in an offer from Cincinnati after they saw him work out at the Sound Mind Sound Body Camp last week.
"I was already being recruited by Cincinnati and already had a good relationship with them, but it was another chance to come out and see me," Holloman said. "By that next morning they wanted me to give them a call and they offered me."
It was the eighth offer for the 5-foot-11, 185-pound Holloman, but the first from a program outside the Mid-American Conference.
"I have a very high interest in the program. It is my first BCS offer, so that is always special," he said. "I am going to have to go out there as soon as I can, probably in July for one of their camps.
"I know that they have a lot of guys go in the NFL Draft. I know their running backs coach coached at Auburn for a bit. I am pretty sure when I get on campus I will know more about it."
Coaches from close to 50 college programs worked the Sound Mind Sound Body Camp near Holloman's hometown last week, and he was able to interact and perform for several more staffs.
"I met one of the Iowa coaches, said 'Hi,' to Brady Hoke (Michigan) and Ohio State was there," Holloman said. "After the camp I talked to all (the Ohio State) staff and that looked good. I will probably get down to one of their camps soon.
"There were a lot of coaching staffs from the MAC that had already offered me, and I ran into those guys. I know Indiana was there watching me too. I have been in contact with them lately."
Holloman does not plan to partake in any more camps until July, and he expects his recruitment to go into his senior season.
"My plan is to use all my official visits," Holloman said. "I am not really in a rush right now."
