Newton Rams four-star wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman has committed to the University of Georgia, according to Newton Rams assistant coach Josh Skelton who contacted The Covington News via Twitter.
Holloman finished his senior season with 31 catches, 513 receiving yards and seven touchdowns for the Class AAAAAAA Rams who finished the 2016 season at 6-4-1 after a loss to No. 3 Mill Creek in the first round of the state playoffs.
The 6-foot-3, 195 pound senior had an extensive list of close to 50 college suitors, but had narrowed down his list to UGA, Nebraska, Miami and several others. He’d initially pegged December 16 as the approximate time to make his decision, but it appears that Holloman has decided not to wait to make his pledge to the Georgia Bulldogs.
Georgia’s regular season ended last Saturday with a 28-27 loss to archival Georgia Tech in Kirby Smart’s first season at the helm. The passing game and offense looks bright with freshman quarterback Jacob Eason at the controls for at least another two years.
