According to 247Sports, Cincinnati offered Holloman on Dec. 9. Northwestern offered on Nov. 17 and Vanderbilt extended an invitation on Nov. 13. Indiana and Minnesota also expressed interest by offering scholarships. Troy, UAB and UNLV did the same.
The unranked prospect is the fifth member of Michigan’s 2017 class. According to 247Sports, the Wolverines have the No. 15-ranked 2017 class. Back in April, tight end Carter Dunaway became the first to commit.
Kurt Taylor, a 3-star running back, has been committed to Michigan since Oct. 16; he’s Holloman’s teammate at Newton.
On Dec. 5, 4-star offensive tackle JaRaymond Hall committed to the Wolverines. Benjamin St-Juste, a 3-star cornerback, committed in June.
According to 247Sports, Jim Harbaugh’s Wolverines have extended 145 offers to prospects in the 2017 class. Many of those offers were given to running backs, quarterbacks and wide receivers, as the Wolverines will need to reload the skilled positions after the 2016 season.
Nineteen of those offers have been to Georgia high schoolers. The SEC-state has become one of Harbaugh’s favorite recruiting grounds.
