Indiana added some speed to its 2021 recruiting class on Thursday, landing a commitment from Michigan running back David Holloman.
The three-star running back was clocked at 4.33 seconds in the 40-yard dash at an Opening Combine recruiting event, according to The Detroit News. He also ran a 4.39 in the 40-yard dash at a similar recruiting event last May. Holloman, a 5-foot-10.5, 189-pound native of Auburn Hills, Mich., chose IU over reported offers from Nebraska, Maryland, Rutgers, Iowa State and West Virginia, among others.
Here’s the 247 Sports scouting report from analyst Allen Trieu:
“Has more of a longer, leaner frame than a classic running back build but has spent time the weight room and is put-together. High-end timed speed. Has shown burst as a route-runner in a camp setting. Catches the ball well. Needs to continue to work on reading blocks and playing up to timed speed. Once he is in the open field, he can outrun defenders. Works hard on his training and craft. As long as he can continue development as a football player, he has the rare speed to make a difference at the collegiate level.”
As a junior, Holloman rushed for 1,223 yards on 101 carries, scoring 14 touchdowns in nine games played, per MaxPreps. He’s the sixth verbal commit in IU’s 2021 class.
