    Another highly rated WR will be at the Spring Game April 20th with his dad, a former Syracuse player. Is this any relation to the recent Mike Holmes? Nice to see us getting mentioned and even visits with schools such as Notre Dame, Michigan, Oklahoma. Also, he is an STA guy so we have a few things going for us.

    as for the Spring game I also saw Corey Cooper, and Darius Kelly will be there. I'm sure plenty of others as well.

    His dad was David Holmes (not sure if any relation to Mike):

    If memory serves ... Holmes had a couple of INT's against LSU in the 1989 Hall of Fame Bowl.

    I don't think your memory is serving you well. 1989?

    Should have included this...

    What proud dad wouldn't want his son to follow in his footsteps?

    AN UPDATE: Holmes started all 12 games at cornerback during the ’87 season and did a little bit of everything for the Orangemen with 55 tackles, six pass breakups, three interceptions, a fumble recovery, a forced fumble and a blocked field goal. Chosen by Miami in the fourth round of the 1989 NFL Draft, Holmes knocked around for a while with the Dolphins, the Detroit Lions and the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats before injuries derailed his career. After spending time with both the FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration, he is the chief of police of North Lauderdale, Fla. Holmes, 46, lives in Pembroke Pines, Fla., with his wife (Carolyn) and their two children (Corey and Courtney).

    not to mention i am sure he has relived the memories of his career countless times when Corey was growing up. Those were some very good teams he was on. He has probably heard first hand how Syracuse played for a national title so it won't seem too far fetched that such things are possible at Syracuse.

    Man would I love to land this kid. Look at his offer list on S cout (assuming they are all legit offers):

    Florida
    Florida State
    Miami
    Oklahoma
    Michigan
    Notre Dame
    West Virginia
    Tennessee

    ...among several others. He'd be a great get.

    his video shows great hands and focus; let's hope he wants to follow in Dad's footsteps and go Orange.

    If I remember correctly, David could really lay a hit on.

    Tough kid. Gonna be a great WR at the college level. Has the guts to catch the ball in traffic and take a hard hit and the speed to get YAC/serve as a deep threat.

    Impressive, and I think he will be ready to contribute almost right away.

    Holmes is a lean and lanky prospect with ideal height and long limbs. He is a flexible gumby-type who plays primarily on the inside as a slot in high school, but could be more of an outside threat for the next level. He is shifty and fluid and that makes ... for full access to RecruitingNation become an Insider [​IMG]

    would be so great if the new regime could start landing some of the many legacy kids growing up now - too many whiffs the last few years on some great prospects with Orange roots

    go get him coach McDonald!

    I mean we are fighting against the big dogs right here . We do have a few things going for us though. Between it being his dads a la mater and this being McDonalds prime recruiting grounds it should help . This would be a huge statement of GM's recruiting abilities . It won't be easy, but him coming to visit should mean he is definitely considering us.

    I would also like to point out SU's recent success in signing WR's named Corey... Yet another factor we have going on for us with this guy!

    I can't help but wonder if he's just "considering" us the way Gronkowski did, as in, it's just to placate family and he doesn't intend to actually put us in his final couple schools.
