Report: Mizzou defender enters transfer portal
Missouri cornerback Christian Holmes has entered the NCAA transfer portal, according to AL.com’s Matt Zenitz.
Holmes started 12 games over the last two seasons for the Tigers. Just because Holmes entered the transfer portal doesn’t mean he’ll actually leave Missouri, but it does give other coaches an opportunity to contact him about a potential transfer. Usually, when players enter the portal, it’s a good indication that they’ll end up leaving.
Holmes, from Atlanta, Georgia, played in 12 games in 2019, making 29 tackles, including 2.5 for loss, with four pass breakups. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound corner is a former 3-star prospect and ranked as the nation’s No. 114 cornerback and the state of Georgia’s No. 114 overall prospect in the class of 2016, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Holmes’ best games in 2019 came against Tennessee and Florida, where he recorded five tackles in each game. His best year at Mizzou came in 2018 where he made 36 tackles and two INTs.
