OVERVIEW

Holloman made the transition from strong safety to linebacker and became a hybrid linebacker-safety during his collegiate career at South Carolina. He not only embraced the move but he found that opposing coaches made sure to account for his position on the field when going against their offenses. He finished fourth on the team with 57 tackles, boasting a career-high eight stops behind the line of scrimmage.
OVERVIEW

Holloman made the transition from strong safety to linebacker and became a hybrid linebacker-safety during his collegiate career at South Carolina. He not only embraced the move but he found that opposing coaches made sure to account for his position on the field when going against their offenses. He finished fourth on the team with 57 tackles, boasting a career-high eight stops behind the line of scrimmage.

Holloman also shut down the short area passing game of many collegiate offenses. On 56 passes targeted to his area, opposing passers completed just 13 of those tosses (23.21%). The senior also broke up four passes and led the team with three interceptions. He also rerouted his coverage assignments away from 23 other throws. The result of his success also led to tremendous success for South Carolina, as they would improve to second in the Southeastern Conference and eighth in the nation in pass defense, allowing just 163 yards per game in 2012.

South Carolina ranked 46th nationally in total defense (354.36) during his junior campaign, but after moving the former safety to the linebacker corps, they placed third in the SEC and 15th in the country, giving up just 300.6 yards per game in 2012.

Before he joined the South Carolina program, Holloman first attended Independence High School for three years, but as a senior, the Charlotte, North Carolina native transferred to South Point High School in Rock Hill, South Carolina. At his new school, he teamed with future Gamecocks Stephon Gilmore and Jadeveon Clowney. The trio played a major part in the school capturing the 2008 South Carolina High School State Championship.

Holloman fit in immediately at South Pointe High. He was named first-team All-State by The State after he helped his team to a perfect 15-0 record. He not only started at safety, but saw action on offense as a receiver, in addition to excelling on special teams for the Stallions.

The 2008 season would see Holloman record 81 tackles. He scored seven times during the season which included interception returns twice during the campaign. He averaged 16.5 yards on 18 punt returns that included three touchdowns. He also averaged 20.8 yards as a kickoff returner, including a 69-yard touchdown vs. Fort Mill, adding one more score in that clash after recovering a fumble and taking it into the end zone from five yards out.

Holloman would earn invitations to play in the Under Armour High School All-American Game in Orlando and in the North- South game. The four-star prospect was rated the 10th-best outside linebacker in the nation and the seventh-best prospect in the state of South Carolina by Rivals.com. He was also a four-star prospect and regarded as the nation's sixth-best outside linebacker according to Scout.com.

Holloman was considered the state's sixth-best player by Super Prep and ranked 19th in the nation on the ESPNU 150 list. He graduated in December, 2008 and after narrowing down his list, the recruit enrolled at South Carolina, turning down scholarship offers from Clemson, North Carolina, Louisiana State and Tennessee.
