The spring evaluation period has been positive for Mikah Holder as colleges stop by Oceanside, Calif., to see him and his brother, Alijah, and their recruitment is picking up.
Recently, San Diego State, Cal, BYU and San Jose State met with the Holder Bros. and they received some positive news from those programs.
"Cal was talking to us about how they're going to come out again and how they really like us and BYU actually called me later that night and said they're going to offer," Holder said. "The receivers coach called me and said they're going to offer but it won't be official for a few days. I basically have a BYU offer.
"It's been pretty cool. I think it will be good for other players including myself and my brother because my head coach told me starting next week there is going to be a coach at my school every day. It will be cool for other players to get looks at Oceanside also."
With the new BYU offer, Holder also has Idaho, Nevada, San Diego State and San Jose State on his list along with a big offer from Arizona that carries a lot of weight.
The 6-foot-1, 170-pound wide receiver who shined at the recent B2G Elite 7on7 Tournament said he loved his unofficial visit to Tucson, had a great time with the coaching staff and the Wildcats might be tough to beat in his recruitment.
"I like to look at every school and give them an equal opportunity but Arizona after visiting that campus it was really nice," Holder said. "I thought it was one of the best schools I've seen so far.
"I've been advised by my coaches I should make a decision before my senior season starts. I think I might go along with that."
Holder said he and his brother have discussed playing together in college and that's the way they're leaning but no final decisions have been made yet. They're open to looking at different places but that is probably unlikely.
"It would be a plus but it's not set in stone," Holder said.
"We're looking for a good academic college and if one of us likes one of their majors then it might just go that way. It would be a plus if one school could offer us athletically and academically what we need."
