Former UGA standout JJ Holloman is making a recruiting visit to Florida International this weekend, according to 247ports.com’s Andrew Ivins.
Holloman was abruptly dismissed from the Bulldogs last month after allegations surfaced about domestic abuse.
It was a stunning turn of events for UGA, as Holloman was the team’s top returning receiver for the upcoming season.
Florida International is an FBS-level program located in Miami, and coached by former University of Miami coach Butch Davis. FUI plays in Conference USA, and the Panthers posted a 9-4 record this past season.
If Holloman transferred to FIU, he would sit out next season as a redshirt, and then have two years of eligibility.
Meanwhile at UGA, the already-surreal expectations for the incoming freshmen duo of George Pickens and Dominick Blaylock, along with Miami transfer Lawrence Cager, have increased immensely — if that’s possible.
Pickens, who was rated as a 5-star recruit, was described by UGA quarterback Jake Fromm as a rare talent who “could be the next A.J. Green,” while the Bulldogs all-time leading receiver (Terrence Edwards) gave Pickens the ultimate compliment, saying he was “a true No. 1 wide receiver.”
UGA also has some veteran faces at the position, including Demetris Robertson (a former 5-star) and Tyler Simmons.
