One of the best players in the Golden of California is four-star wide receiver/cornerback Jamere Holland (6-1, 175, 4.35) from Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft. The exciting two-way player has three favorites but has committed to five visits.
"The top three schools are Florida, Oregon and Arizona," Taft offensive coordinator Derwin Henderson said. "He will also take visits to Washington and Mississippi State."
"Those five schools will get Jamere's official visits," Henderson said. "At least that's the plan right now. He won't be taking any visits until after our season."
Taft is a perfect 12-0 and Holland is a very good reason why. So far Holland has 43 receptions for 935 yards and 12 receiving touchdowns. He also has one rushing touchdown and three scores on special teams.
On defense, Holland is a shutdown cover corner who gets in a receiver's pocket and stays there. He so good in coverage that the he covers are virtually taken out of game. He has racked up 26 tackles on the season. Holland has blocked two punts and one ended up being a safety.
Holland and his Taft teammates will hook up this Friday Evening against another undefeated team in Sylmar, Calif., led by four-star running back C.J. Gable.
Holland's talents aren't held just for the gridiron. He was also the state's 100-meter and 200-meter champ as a junior.
There are no at this time Olympic aspirations because football is the sport of choice. The final five schools will allow Holland to compete in both football and track on the collegiate level.
