Update: According to sources, Holloman is not officially on Liberty’s roster as he works on finalizing his transfer from FIU.
Liberty has picked up a commitment from transfer wide receiver JJ Holloman, he tells ASOR. The 6’2″, 200 pound Holloman joins the Flames from FIU after beginning his collegiate career at Georgia. Out of high school, he was rated as a four-star prospect and 247Sports rated him as the No. 98 overall recruit and No. 16 wide receiver prospect in the country.
Holloman has spent some time during the offseason working out with Liberty quarterback Malik Willis and some of the Flames’ other receivers. Liberty is in desperate need of additional help at outside receiver after CJ Yarbrough elected to move on from playing college football.
Holloman, who was dismissed from Georgia in the summer before the 2019 season, spent the past two seasons at FIU. He sat out the first year due to transfer rules then caught eight passes for 108 yards and one touchdown in a five game shortened season in 2020 while only playing in three games. He was third on the team in receiving yards on the season and recorded 2 receptions for 25 yards against Liberty in a game played in Lynchburg early in the season..
He has two seasons of eligibility remaining. During his sophomore season at Georgia in 2018, Holloman had 24 receptions for 418 yards and five touchdowns. He had approximately 50 offers out of high school including from Georgia, Miami, Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Michigan.
