Justin Holmes does not have any offers yet but if he continues to play so well in 7on7 tournaments and coaches come to see him this spring that could change quickly.
The 6-foot-3, 195-pound three-star wide receiver from Roseville (Calif.) Oakmont has been outstanding at numerous tournaments this spring and has firmly established himself as someone who could play big-time college football.
Holmes, who looked good once again at the B2G Tournament last weekend at Fullerton College, took an unofficial visit to UCLA while in town and was thoroughly impressed with the practice.
The Bruins have not offered yet but made it clear they want to see Holmes this summer and after watching practice and learning more about the program, the three-star from Northern California is excited about the possibilities.
"They just showed me how the practices ran, how high tempo they are and it was really nice," Holmes said. "I still love that campus and it's a beautiful place. It was really high intensity there and I loved it.
"It's so much more bang-bang-bang high tempo and everything is full speed. You can tell the new coaching staff really wants big improvements and you can see it."
It is still slow early in the recruiting process but Holmes hopes that will change soon as he receives more exposure. UCLA is atop his list and another visit this summer for camp could be highly beneficial for him.
"They invited me to their elite camp on June 21 and I'll be attending that and hopefully an offer will be coming after that," Holmes said.
Other than UCLA, the Roseville Oakmont standout said Utah has shown increased interest recently.
Rated as the No. 72 wide receiver in the 2014 class by Rivals.com, Holmes was one of the top prospects at the recent NLA 7on7 in Las Vegas.
