Darnay Holmes, one of the top recruits in the nation, has informed Maize n Brew that he will visit Michigan for the BBQ at the Big House on August 6.
The five-star cornerback and wide receiver will later take an official visit to Michigan on September 17 for the Wolverines battle against Colorado, according to Greg Biggins of Scout. Along with Michigan, Holmes will officially visit Nebraska (vs. Fresno State) and Ohio State (vs. Nebraska) during the season. He could, if needed, choose two more official visits to take. Holmes would probably use the last two visits on UCLA and Tennessee.
With offers to Nebraska, Michigan, Ohio State, Stanford, UCLA, Washington, Alabama, Arizona, California, Clemson, Colorado State, Florida State, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami (FL), Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, San Diego State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, and Washington State, Holmes will commit to a program on January 7 at the US Army All-American Bowl.
Holmes told Maize n Brew back in early June that Michigan is an automatic lock as a Top 3 school. The cornerback and wide receiver still does not have a Top 3 set.
The 5-foot-10, 190-pound athlete from Calabasas High School in California mentioned to Maize n Brew that he has not been in any contact with 2017 Michigan quarterback commit Dylan McCaffrey. However, Holmes said he has a good relationship with 2017 Ohio State quarterback commit Tate Martell.
“I always talk to him,” Holmes pointed out regarding Martell.
Holmes is the 10th overall player in the Class of 2017, according to 247Sports. He is the top cornerback in the nation and the third-best player in the state of California, behind Najee Harris (Alabama) and Jaelan Phillips (UCLA).
With an unofficial and official visit to Michigan on the way for Holmes, the Wolverines will do their very best to bring the prized possession to the Big House for his college career.
