2017 wide receiver Berkeley Holman commits to Northwestern

He’s the second wide receiver in the class.

Three-star class-of-2017 wide receiver Berkeley Holman (St. John Bosco; Bellflower, CA) has committed to Northwestern, he tweeted out Saturday afternoon.

Holman chose Northwestern over two Power Five schools, Pac-12 teams Utah and Oregon State, as well as Columbia, Hawaii, Nevada, Pennsylvania and UNLV. He also drew significant interest from Boise State.

The 6-foot, 185-pound Holman received a .8355 composite rating from 247 Sports. He is rated as the 143rd-best wide receiver in the class and the 104th-best player in California. He came away impressed after a June 13 visit to Northwestern’s campus.

Berkeley comes from a powerhouse St. John Bosco program, which won the national title in 2013 and has produced several professional athletes, including Nomar Garciaparra and Evan Longoria. Holman also shared one season with current UCLA star quarterback Josh Rosen.

As a junior, Holman pulled in 31 passes for 550 yards and three touchdowns, according to MaxPreps. As you can see from his highlights, Holman can really move (he also runs track), and he can also contribute on special teams.

Holman is Northwestern’s second wide receiver in the class, joining local commit Jace James. The Wildcats started the month with no receivers in the class.
