from Salem, Oregon. Holmes played last season at San Francisco where he averaged 12.5 points and 3.1 assists per game and led them to a second place finish in the WCC.

He is a great shooter that finished the season with a .433 three point shooting percentage. Holmes will have two years of eligibility left after having to sit out next year due to transfer rules.

After visiting Clemson over the weekend, Holmes made the decision to play for Brownell and the Tigers. One of Holmes' factors for transferring was that he wanted to play in a bigger basketball conference.

Holmes posted the following on Facebook on Sunday night:
