“This game has changed my life taking me out of the hood in Philly and letting me see the world,” he wrote on Facebook during the season.
Holsey said he also hopes to be part of a local workout with the Philadelphia Eagles. He is originally from Philadelphia although he spent his high school years at national power Oscar Smith in Virginia. After two years at Independence Community College in Missouri, he came to UB.
He finished with 51 catches for 737 yards and two touchdowns in 24 games. One of those touchdowns was in the first overtime of what eventually would a record-tying seven-overtime game against Western Michigan.
At 6-4 and 215, he hopes to get an opportunity at the next level and get his name on the radar of teams for the frenzy that follows the draft. He has changed his Twitter bio to read 2018 NFL DRAFT PROSPECT.
"I’m currently working with my trainer and my position coach to prepare myself for rookie minicamp with whatever team gives me a shot," Holsey said.
