Holmes close to first offer

Kishawn Holmes has been outstanding at numerous events this off-season including the Rivals Camp in Los Angeles and the Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta running back could be close to his first offer.
"Colorado State is basically about to offer next week," Holmes said. "They hit me up Monday, I never talked to them ever before, I just wrote him back and they wanted to give me a call.
"They said they're going to recruit people, they're not just going to throw out scholarships to see if they're going to commit or not. He said they only recruit people they really like and if they're recruiting me there is a 99 percent chance I'm going to get an offer."
After conversations with the Colorado State staff, Holmes is confident that could be his first offer in the coming days.
The shifty and athletic 5-foot-8, 178-pound prospect looked good again this past weekend at the Gamebreakers Challenge in Newbury Park, Calif., and he said his recruitment has gotten much busier.
One connection to Colorado State is that former Vista Murrieta quarterback Nick Stevens, a 2013 signee, will play there and Holmes said it's good to have familiarity within the program.
"Basically, they said they really want me," Holmes said.
"They already got my quarterback from last year and he's spoken highly of me. They're doing an evaluation on me and they're offering running backs and athletes next week so he told me not to be surprised if I get one. He said I was high on their recruiting list."
BYU might also offer. Holmes said that coaching staff has been really aggressive recently and threw out comparisons to standout running back Jamaal Williams.
"It's pretty big," Holmes said. "Right now it's like a waiting game. I'm waiting for a whole bunch of colleges to come in and pull that trigger.
"BYU is saying they could offer, too. They hit me up and asked if I was interested. I'm not going to turn down any college. They threw out Jamaal Williams to me and we were talking about that. They said they really like me a lot."
Soon, Holmes will visit Colorado and Oklahoma State. The Tulsa, Okla., native said an offer from the Cowboys would be huge in his recruitment.
