"Michigan will get a hard look especially because of David Long, my brother pretty much, is going there," Holmes said to Maize n Brew when releasing his Top 7 on May 28. "[Jim] Harbaugh is doing great things up there and the academics are stellar."
As far as playing for Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, the 5-foot-10, 190-pound cornerback said, "I know that he would know my skill set and how successful I can be, so I will just believe in his layout because God does not bless too many coaches to coach in the NFL and have a great resume."
The five-star athlete from Calabasas, California has offers from Nebraska, Ohio State, Sanford, UCLA, Alabama, Arizona, California, Clemson, Colorado State, Florida State, Kentucky, Louisville, Miami (FL), Michigan, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, San Diego State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Utah, Washington and Arizona State.
Holmes told Maize n Brew that he will commit to a program before the end of his high school football season.
