A product of St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, California, Holman made his 2020 debut in Northwestern’s victory over the Wisconsin Badgers on November 21. Prior to exiting the Michigan State clash, he had caught two passes for 27 yards, his first statistics of the season.
For his career, he has appeared in 24 games, recording 18 receptions for 210 yards.
The Wildcats’ scheduled Saturday clash with Minnesota was canceled because of positive coronavirus (COVID-19) cases within the Golden Gophers’ program. Pat Fitzgerald’s team will round out their regular season at home against the Illinois Fighting Illini on December 12.
