Played exceptionally well in the Army All-American Bowl, displaying quickness around the edge on the pass rush. Able to change directions quickly to track down ball carriers. Large frame, and will likely continue to get bigger.
With names like Noah Spence, Joey Bosa, Adolphus Washington, Jamal Marcus, Steve Miller and Tyquan Lewis at defensive end for the Buckeyes in 2014, there isn't much room for a freshman to make his mark. If Washington moves to defensive tackle full time, perhaps that will open a door for Holmes.
