Indiana has added more speed to its 2021 recruiting class, thanks to a verbal commitment from a talented Michigan running back on Thursday night.
David Holloman, a three-star running back out of Auburn Hills, Michigan, became the sixth member of Indiana’s 2021 class, giving his verbal pledge to the Hoosiers. He’s the first player out of the state of Michigan to join Tom Allen’s latest class and made his announcement on Twitter.
“I am very proud to announce that I will be committing to Indiana University to further my academic and football career,” Holloman wrote.

A 5-foot-11, 190-pound running back, Holloman brings incredible speed to the field and has the ability to run past defenders once he reaches the open field. He’s also demonstrated the ability to catch the football out of the backfield, adding another element to his game.
Indiana has had plenty of success with its young running backs in recent years, with Stevie Scott III and Sampson James both carving out prominent rolls for the Hoosiers early in their careers. Holloman might be another prospect who can get onto the field early, as well.
Per 247Sports, Holloman ranks as one of the top 30 players out of Michigan and is the No. 68 running back in the 2021 cycle. He’s the first ball carrier to commit to the Hoosiers during this class.
Holloman picked Indiana over offers from Boston College, Iowa State, Maryland, Nebraska, Rutgers, Washington State and West Virginia. The Hoosiers now rank 11th in the B1G and 37th nationally with the 2021 class.
