Apologies to the other recruits, but this will be the funniest commitment of the day.
Five-star cornerback Darnay Holmes (5-foot-10, 190 pounds, Calabasas, Ca.) announced his commitment at Saturday’s Army All-American Bowl, and he wound up picking UCLA after what he called a decision from the whole family. Apparently not everyone in the family was on board, though, as Holmes’ nephew definitely had a different preference.
Right before Holmes picked up the UCLA hat, the little guy in front is openly cheering for Ohio State and pointing at the Buckeyes. His disappointment when Holmes picks up the other hat? Priceless.
Holmes is a big pickup for Jim Mora and company at UCLA, as the five-star is now their second highest-rated commitment. They have 13 pledges total for their 2017 class.
