Holloway plans to see Miami

Tampa (Fla.) Alonso athlete Brandon Holloway recently landed his first two offers.
"North Texas and Toledo have offered me," Holloway said. "I am receiving interest from UCF, USF, Ball State, Notre Dame, and Miami."
For the Tampa-area athlete, he just wants to find a school that provides a two-sport opportunity at a high-level.
"I just like big programs with good track teams and good football programs," Holloway said. "I definitely want to do both (football and track) in college. I am open to go to any college no matter where it is at, as long as it is a good program and a good opportunity."
On the track, Holloway participates in the 100 meters, 200 meters, 4X4 relay, and also high jumps.
One school that fits the criterion that the 5-foot-9, 155-pounder is looking for is the Miami Hurricanes. He is hoping to make it to Coral Gables for a visit in the near future.
"I am planning to visit Miami in a little bit," Holloway said. "I am planning to attend one of their spring practices sometime soon."
He has had some discussions with Al Golden's staff, specifically Jethro Franklin.
"He just said they are very interested in me," Holloway said. "He said they have watched my film and talked to (Anthony) Chickillo a lot about me. He said he has seen my grades. He just said he likes everything about me and wants to see me on campus for a visit so we can meet in person since I haven't actually met any of the Miami coaches before."
Another person talking about the 'Canes regularly with Holloway is his former high school teammate Anthony Chickillo.
"He said he likes it a lot," Holloway said. "He has been talking to me about it a lot. He said the coaches there are very interested in me. He said it is a real good school so I am pretty interested to learn even more about them for myself."
Miami, like most schools, are interested in putting Holloway in space and allowing him to use his speed to make plays.
"Schools are recruiting me more as a slot receiver than a running back," Holloway said. "I like the slot a lot."
Holloway recently missed a USF Junior Day due to a track meet, but he hopes to make it to the Tampa-based campus in the coming months.
As a junior, Holloway had 406 rushing yards and four touchdowns in 97 carries. He also played defensive back and special teams. On special teams, he returned eigh punts for 130 yards and nine kickoffs for 188 yards.
