San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills cornerback Devin Holiday discusses his experience at Arizona State…
In-Depth: CB Devin Holiday
San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills cornerback Devin Holiday knows exactly what he's working on improving during the off-season. "I'm focusing on my speed and my jamming ability," said Holiday. He's wasting no time, as the junior has been putting in hours in the weight room with his team, the Grizzlies, and also on the field at the B2G Instinct Training Camps. "We've been in the weight room and working on our speed, getting faster. Our coach always says that speed kills. I'm doing both speed training and positional drills, getting my hips right so I can run with the receivers," said Holiday. Holiday is working for the upcoming season, but knows that perfecting his skill at the position will help him at the next level, as well. "I definitely think corner is where I'll play in college. I love corner, guarding the guys, talking smack. It's what we do," he laughed. Holiday, who lists his "player instinct, breaking speed, and downfield coverage" as his biggest strengths at the position, doesn't have any offers quite yet, but isn't deterred. He recently participated in UCLA's Junior Day and told FOX Sports NEXT that the coaches said they would spend some time evaluating his film. Holiday grew up a fan of the Bruins, but there are a few other schools that have been showing him some interest that are on the cornerback's radar. "I've always liked UCLA and that's who I'm interested in. It's close to home, a great education, and you can make life connections there. I'm also hearing from Colorado, Washington State, Hawaii, and New Mexico State," he said. Two of the other programs stand out for Holiday and he is interested in learning more about them. "Hawaii would be an awesome place to go to school and Colorado was ranked one of the top cities to go to college in and that sparked my interest," he said. Aside from location, Holiday is looking for a school that will give him a good education and enable him to make contacts for when football eventually ends.
