Mullen lands Fla. speedster

Tampa (Fla.) Alonso athlete Brandon Holloway felt close to a decision after weekend visits to Mississippi State and Vanderbilt. After taking a day to think things over upon arriving back home in Central Florida, Holloway decided to make the call.
"I made the decision to commit to Mississippi State," Holloway said. "I felt that Mississippi State was the place for me. It felt really right when I was there. It went really well for me while I was there. I love the coaches there. I felt like I had a good bond and that it was a good place for me."
The coach who got the good news in Starkville, Miss. was none other than head coach Dan Mullen.

"I talked to Coach Dan Mullen and then talked to the rest of the coaches," Holloway said. "Coach Mullen was really excited to hear the new. He knew that he was one of the top schools for me but when he heard the news he was really excited to hear that I was going to be committing there."
The 5-foot-9, 155-pound speedster will participate in both football and track at Mississippi State. He is looking forward to being a part of the Bulldogs' dynamic offensive attack which utilizes speed so well.
"I am really excited to get down there," Holloway said. "I can't wait to learn the offense and get a chance to wear the uniform and play for them."
While Holloway held a dozen other offers, he says he is now done with the process.
"I am done," Holloway said. "I won't take any other visits. I am hoping to take an official visit there as soon as my school year starts. As soon as I can."
