Kansas Football Announces The Addition of Brandon Hollomon
April 1, 2013
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas football head coach Charlie Weis announced the signing of defensive back Brandon Hollomon Monday afternoon. Hollomon, who spent the 2012 season at Los Angeles’ Pierce College, is the 27th player to join the Jayhawks in their 2013 recruiting class.
Hollomon, who will be a sophomore in 2013, played in eight games for the Brahmas in 2012, helping Pierce to a 9-2 overall mark and a Patriotic Bowl title. He tallied 19 tackles, including 13 solo stops, on the season. He also recorded seven pass breakups, with three coming in the double-overtime Patriotic Bowl win over Mt. San Jacinto.
A native of Philadelphia, Pa., Hollomon attended West Catholic High School where he starred on both sides of the ball. He was a two-time all-state, all-city and all-catholic honoree after rushing for 2,985 yards and 33 touchdowns on 330 carries during his junior and senior seasons. Hollomon also caught 34 passes for 422 yards and three TDS on offense, while recording five interceptions on defense for West Catholic.
Hollomon is one of three players to sign with KU from Pierce, joining defensive lineman Marquel Combs and linebacker Marcus Jenkins-Moore. He is the fifth defensive back in the 2013 Kansas recruiting class and 19th junior college addition.
