During his senior season, he started in 10 games, played in 11 and led the ACC in tackles (and was 31st in the nation). He was named second team All-ACC after accumulating 105 tackles (8 TFL), 4 pass break ups, and 4 forced fumbles.He is an athletic freak: His 40 time of 4.48 would have been 4th among linebackers (behind only the Devins and Gary Johnson) at the Combine; His broad jump of 132r1; would have been tops among LBs; His vertical of 39.5r1; would have tied him for second Jimmy Moreland Jersey 2019 , with Devin White (only Devin Bush leaped higher); His 22 reps would have tied him at 12th - with Devin White.

Distinguished by his strong tackling ability and ceaseless hustle, Holcomb should be an instant upgrade covering kick off and punt returns.Eventually, he should provide depth at weak-side linebacker, providing significant speed (4.48 40yd) at a position where the Redskins have struggled with that during Mason Fosterr17;s tenure (4.67 40yd).Holcomb plays with a passion for the game and energy that is infectious, and should be a welcome addition to a Redskinsr17; ILB corps that is trending younger, more athletic, and hungry.
