Kirby Smart is not the kind of coach that gushes with praise just because he is asked about the progress of a player. In fact, Smart is brutally honest in his public assessments. When Georgia’s second-year head coach says that early enrollee Jeremiah Holloman is “very consistent,” the young pup is getting high praise for his work this spring.
“The number one thing is, he’s very consistent. Most of these freshman come in, and they’re very up-and-down, emotionally. ‘I’m really good one day and really bad another.’ This kid is just like that (hand making a straight line across). He just stays level-headed, doesn’t get affected by criticism. He’s had some days where he’s been inconsistent catching the ball, but he’s never inconsistent with how hard he practices. He had the highest GPS for the receivers three straight days, meaning he’s running the longest. He’s really physical. You talk to the DBs and they say ‘This guy brings a little thump to him and he’s not afraid of contact. He made a couple of good plays today as well.”
