Recruit Profile: DL Damien Holmes

About 13 months ago USC signed Allen Bradford and Shareece Wright out of Colton (CA) High, two of the top prospects in the country. Both were two way stars just like their former teammate, Damien Holmes (6-4, 255).

Last season Holmes had 72 tackles, 14 sacks and recovered two fumbles from his defensive end position. He also had 25 receptions for 396 yards and one touchdown and was named all-CIF at both tight end and defensive end. Harold Strauss (Colton head coach) said coaches from USC compared Holmes to Dominique Byrd at tight end and Shaun Cody as a defensive lineman. That‘s pretty high praise... Recommended Stories
