Madison (Ala.) Bob Jones inside linebacker Nick Holman committed to USF Sunday night. He becomes the sixteenth commitment of the 2014 class - and the first inside linebacker.

"I'm happy - It's kind of like a weight off my shoulders," Holman told Runningthebulls.com. "Now I can just focus on getting this state ring."

"I can't come down there early (for enrollment) because I have to take a couple of more classes in high school to graduate. I'm going to come down there ready to play."

Holman's unofficial visit last weekend played a huge part in his decision - and he also picked up the Bulls' offer that weekend.

"I went down there and I felt like I was at home - kind of a home away from home. I knew Coach Cooper already from a few different schools. I really feel like they wanted me to come down there and play. It's a school with a lot of people - beaches around it and stuff. It's an up and coming football program and I feel like Coach Taggart and is going to get this thing rolling and it's something I want to be a part of."

"My favorite thing about the visit was just talking to Coach Taggart - not only just about football but just about life. He's a coach you can just call up and talk about anything. Really just having a head coach telling you that football is important means you have to take that into the next step of life whether that's the NFL or just some job."

What will Holman's commitment look like moving forward?

"I'm not looking for anybody else," he said about other colleges. Holman only plans on taking one official - and that's of course to USF.
