Kent State has landed yet another top-line recruit.  Miami-native Kion Holder announced his decision on Twitter this past Monday afternoon.  According to 247Sports' composite rankings, Holder is ranked as a three-star prospect.

Florida has been a hot recruiting place for the Golden Flashes.  Holder explained to Hustle Belt why Kent State is the perfect place for him.  "Coach Poteat and I are building a good relationship and he was telling me I'm their number one safety on the recruiting board.  I also have tow former high school teammates on the team."

Holder is referring to cornerbacks coach Hank Poteat, who was recently hired from Pitt.  Holder is also eluding to 2015 cornerback commit D'Andre Smart and redshirt freshman wide receiver Zaquon Tyson, both of which played football at Norland High School in Miami, Florida.

Holder also told Hustle Belt that he hopes to become a starter as a true freshman.  The 5-foot-11 185 pound defensive back also anticipates succeeding on and off the football field as well as a team winning a few bowl games.
