Kishawn Holmes does not lack confidence.
He talks it up with the best of them and the Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta three-star prospect almost always backs it up on the field.
Holmes was one of the offensive standouts at the UCLA camp last week and he's hopeful these continued performances can start landing him some offers.
"It was great," Holmes said. "Running back one-on-ones against the linebackers, the coaches loved me. They raved about me to the point where they put me in the slot and I just excelled at that. I only had two dropped passes on the day and those were bad passes. Other than that I snagged in everything I could possibly get in.
"The coaches love me. Coach (Steve) Broussard really liked me and I talked to coach (Jim) Mora and he liked me a lot and the defensive coordinator really likes me, too. Hopefully, something good comes out of it."
Holmes, who excelled at the Rivals Camp in Los Angeles along with numerous 7on7 tournaments this off-season, attended the satellite camps of Colorado and Oregon State recently and did well at those, too.
"I was at the Colorado camp and I had another great camp," Holmes said. "Oregon State's camp I was the top performer. I didn't play running back, I played receiver, and it was a field day out there for me. I got out there and caught all those balls and proved I can make a difference out there."
No offers have come in yet for Holmes, a 5-foot-8, 178-pound prospect. He's hopeful, always thinking positively, that once the first offer comes in things will dramatically pick up from there.
The Vista Murrieta prospect could not have done much more this off-season to prove he can play big-time college football.
"Hopefully it takes that one and then everything else will pop," Holmes said. "I'm actually excited how everything is going on."
