Georgia Lands 4-Star Recruits Malik Herring, Jeremiah Holloman


Four-star recruits Malik Herring and Jeremiah Holloman committed to Georgia on Thursday, giving the Bulldogs 18 total commits in the 2017 recruiting class. 


Kirby Smart is making moves and adding to his vision for the Bulldogs.

On Thursday, Georgia pushed its total commits to 18 when it landed a pair of 4-star prospects in Malik Herring and Jeremiah Holloman, who committed to UGA in a joint video via DawgNation.

In the video, Herring, the nation’s No. 18 defensive end and No. 217 overall player, and Holloman, the No. 21 wide receiver and No. 147 overall player, write Christmas letters to Santa Claus. Both players asked him for help in making their college decisions while citing their two requirements as playing for championships and “playing with savages.”

Herring chose the Bulldogs over Alabama and Clemson. Holloman picked Georgia over Auburn, LSU, Miami, Nebraska and Tennessee.

With the additions of Herring and Holloman, Georgia now jumps over Ohio State, who recently lost a 4-star prospect, in the 2017 recruiting class rankings for the No. 3 spot.

At 6-foot-4 and 265 lbs, Herring has the ability to bull rush offensive linemen and forklift them in order to rush the passer. He’s a bit raw in terms of overall technique as a pass rusher, but he also serves as a threat in stopping the run with his backside pursuit.

As for Holloman, he stands at 6-foot-2, 195 lbs and is exactly who UGA needed to add to the offense. He’s a reliable target for Jacob Eason to locate over the middle and can create separation to stretch the field vertically for the Bulldogs.
