Gary Holmes Jr.'s stock on the rise 

May, 10, 2011
The first week of spring was a busy one for running back Gary Holmes Jr. (Loxhatchee, Fla./Seminole Ridge). Although the 5-foot-7, 170-pound speedster doesn't have any offers, he does have plenty of programs interested in his talents.

"A lot of programs are looking at me as a return guy and a slot receiver," Holmes said. "I'd like to continue to be a running back as well but I can play anywhere they put me."

Holmes used his impressive speed (4.39 in the 40 at the Under Armour Combine in Miami) to rush for over 1,400 yards and 17 touchdowns as a junior. Holmes went to Miami for its spring game and admits to liking the Hurricanes.
