Nebraska made a late push for four-star wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman but weren't able to land him.

Holloman announced his commitment to Georgia on Dec. 1 with a video produced by SEC Country. That video shows Nebraska as one of the finalists for Holloman, but he ultimately chooses the homestate Bulldogs.

LSU, Auburn, Tennessee and Miami were other schools in contention for Holloman.

The Huskers offered Holloman on Feb. 10 but weren't believed to be much of a contender in his recruitment. That changed in November when wide receivers coach Keith Williams got Holloman to take an official visit to Lincoln. That happened for the Maryland game on Nov. 19.

Holloman was also one of Williams' first stops on the recruiting trail a couple weeks later. Williams made an in-home visit with Holloman and his family on Nov. 29. His mother was impressed, tweeting "Feels like Christmas came early...Had such an amazing in-home visit with Nebraska last night. I could sit and talk to them forever."

Nebraska was also recruiting his high school teammate, Jaquan Henderson, who took an official visit to Lincoln on Nov. 12.

The Huskers will now turn to other wide receivers on their board. Williams offered a couple new ones on the first days of the contact period, and will visit with more during a recruiting stop in Los Angeles.
