AUBURN, Ala. — Jeremiah Holloman said he has some thinking to do after Big Cat Weekend, Auburn’s biggest recruiting event of the summer.
“I definitely loved it,” Holloman said. “Auburn really got a big boost today. I couldn’t really tell you where schools are standing right now, but today definitely played a huge factor for Auburn.”
UGA led for the four-star recruit from Newton (Ga.) High School heading into the visit. That status could change.
“I am going to have to go home tonight and really think about it now,” Holloman said. “It is real close. It is real tight.”
He had a lot of fun and got to take part in a scavenger hunt and compete in a karaoke contest singing the theme song to “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” Holloman said there is a “real chance” that UGA might no longer be his leader.
“It is a major possibility for that,” Holloman said. “Just getting to see the coaches outside of football and getting to see them as regular people and see what good guys they all are.”
The rising senior said he has seen everything he needs to see from Auburn now.
“All I need to see now is to just get back up here on game day,” he said.
He’s not certain when he will take his next trip to UGA.
“I don’t really plan trips to Georgia,” he said. “With it being so close to home I usually don’t plan out weeks or weekends. I just decide to go up one or two days prior to before I go.”
The U.S. Army All-American has been led to believe that he wouldn’t be just another guy at Auburn. He would have the chance to contribute immediately.
If he eventually chose Auburn, he said that this weekend would be a big reason why.
“If I chose to go to Auburn, this trip would definitely be the foundation for me making the decision to make Auburn and this place my home.”
The 6-foot-3, 195-pounder said his decision is “now up in the air” as to when he might make his decision. The fact he wanted to come back for a home game shows that he might need to wait until the fall to figure out just how he feels about Auburn.”
