Warren Central (Indianapolis, IN) offensive tackle prospect Kiaro Holts stopped by Blacksburg this past Saturday, visiting Virginia Tech for the first time since receiving an official offer from the Hokies. The 6-6, 265-pound junior, who impressed at Tech’s camp last July, was accompanied by teammate and fellow top junior prospect Kris Harley.
“It was great. It was good to see one of my first offers. It was good to see the rest of the campus,” Holts said. “I got to see more of the academic part and also see how the new locker room is.”
Holts, a one-year varsity starter at offensive tackle, spoke once again with head coach Frank Beamer, who reiterated Tech’s interest.
“He said they need me. He wants to keep in touch and build a relationship with me,” said Holts.
Virginia Tech was the first FBS program to offer Holts, who has since added offers from 16 other programs including Arkansas, Cincinnati, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Purdue, Southern Cal and Wake Forest. Currently, four schools top the standout prospect’s list.
“USC, UC, Ole Miss and Virginia Tech…they are around my top,” Holts said.
Holts discussed what he likes about Virginia Tech.
“There is a former Warren Central football player (RB Darren Evans) there. And they run about the same offense and defense we run,” he said.
Holts next will visit Kentucky on March 7. He hopes to visit schools he has not yet visited throughout the spring and summer, adding that he plans to get back to Blacksburg for a game next fall. For now, a commitment does not seem imminent.
“I’m going to break it down every month,” Holts said. “I’m going to make a list and write down the good or bad. I think I’ll take some official visits and probably decide around football season.”
