Auburn Hills (Mich.) Avondale running back Joshuwa Holloman arrived at Alabama's camp this past week with little fanfare, but by the time he left the class of 2015 prospect had created a lot of buzz.
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound Holloman had no prior contact with Alabama coaches before attending this week's camp, but he is definitely on their radar now.
"I just wanted to come down here and camp and I opened their eyes," Holloman said. "I got to work out with Coach [Burton] Burns and they liked me, so everything went great. They filmed me at the camp, so they said they were going to evaluate me and come, watch some of my games."
Holloman initially opened Alabama coaches' eyes by running a 4.23 40-yard dash at this week's camp. His speed has already been well-documented, as he took home the Division I state title in the 100 meters this past spring while just a sophomore. Holloman also posted a 38-inch vertical, a 10-3 broad jump and a 4.16 shuttle at the camp.
Prior to the Alabama camp, Holloman had attended camps at Michigan State and Notre Dame earlier this summer.
"They are recruiting me too," Holloman said. "I think I pretty much impressed all the coaches at all the camps I went to."
Several MAC schools as well as Indiana are also showing interest in Holloman early in his recruitment. He goes into the process with no preconceived ideas about where he wants to play ball.
"I don't really have any favorites right now," he said. "I'm just letting it go by and it's just a process now."
As a sophomore, Holloman carried 102 times for 826 yards and 12 touchdowns. He will reprise his role in the backfield for Avondale this fall and may also see some time on defense.
