St. Pius linebacker T.J. Holloman committed to South Carolina on Sunday night. On Monday, he said his next order of business was recruiting his high school teammate for the Gamecocks — cornerback Geno Smith, who is a candidate to be Georgia’s No. 1 college football prospect for next year.

 

“I want to help South Carolina in recruiting by having the best 2012 class, starting by working on my teammate Geno,” Holloman said.

Holloman gave three reasons for picking the Gamecocks: “No. 1, Coach Spurrier stresses the importance of graduation and, as an athlete, it is important for me to excel in the classroom first. I believe in order to do well on the field, it starts in the classroom. No. 2, South Carolina has a winning record for the past two years and made it to the SEC Championship, showing the program is a great competitor in the best conference in the country. No. 3, when I attended the Spring Game I observed the number of fans there. I realized football is important to the fans in South Carolina and I am really big on fan support.”

The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder is being recruited by the Gamecocks at linebacker. Holloman also had scholarship offers from Louisville, Illinois and North Carolina State and was being evaluated by North Carolina and Vanderbilt, among others. He recently attended one of the Junior Days at Georgia, and had some early interest from Georgia Tech.
