RB Holmes waiting for Middle Tennessee

Seminole Ridge (Loxhatchee, Fla.) running back Gary Holmes Jr. is waiting for Middle Tennessee to accept his verbal commitment.

The 5-foot-8, 170-pound senior took his official visit to the campus last week.

"The campus was real nice," Holmes Jr. said. "I liked it there and I think it's the place for me.

"I just have to wait to see how things go this week with some of their other prospects."

Holmes Jr. was offered by Western Michigan as well and was thought to be taking an official visit there this weekend, but plans fell through.

"I don't think that official visit is happening," Holmes Jr. said. "I'm pretty much focused on Middle Tennessee right now."
