ESPNU 150 cornerback prospect Joshua Holsey (Fairburn, Ga./Creekside) feels a lot better about his Auburn commitment now than he did a few weeks ago. After meeting the Tigers' new defensive coordinator, Brian VanGorder, he once again feels rock-solid with Auburn.
“The visit to Auburn was great,” Holsey said Sunday. “We sat down and talked for a few minutes. He seems like a really good dude. I can tell that I will have fun playing under him for the next couple of years. I know he hasn’t seen film of me yet. I like his scheme and I know he brings a lot of experience. I feel like the pressure is off me. Now, I am pretty much done.”
Holsey was contemplating visits to other schools, but this weekend solidified things in his mind.
“I am glad I went when I did,” Holsey said. “I am just getting a little more comfortable with everyone there at Auburn. I love hanging with the players and some of their recruits. It was a good time.”
Holsey, 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, is the No. 5 cornerback in the nation and the No. 9 overall player from the state of Georgia. He’s also the No. 77 overall recruit in the ESPNU 150.
