Caziah Holmes Has Left the Penn State Program

Caziah Holmes, a sophomore running back out of Cocoa, Florida, is reported that is no longer with the program. He is the second running back that left Penn State as Noah Cane entered the transfer portal earlier this offseason and joined LSU.

The 5-foot-11, 217-pound running back was at practice as recently as Wednesday. On Penn States media day last weekend last Saturday, he was asked about not entering the transfer portal with the backfield being crowded with two new blue-chip running backs.

“I didn’t really that crossed my mind,” Holmes said. “I was really focused on doing my best for the team, playing my role, and developing myself and my mindset.”

Holmes is behind Keyvone Lee, Devon Ford, Nicholas Singleton, and Kayron Allen on the running back depth chart coming into camp.
Penn State running backs coach Ja’Juan Seider said that he needed to make up some ground not because of the infusion of new talent, but because he has had nagging injuries in the offseason.

“I thought he had a good spring,” Seider said. “He got nicked up, so he missed some opportunities.”
“What I tell him is it is hard to make the club from the tub. You need every rep because, at this point, you’re no different than the two guys coming in.”

Holmes played all nine games as a freshman for Penn State in the 2020 season rushing for 227 rushing yards averaging 4.5 yards per carry. Last season, after John Lovett, transferred from Baylor and with Lee, Ford, and Cain, he only saw action in three games and had only five carries for 27 yards. Penn State opted to use a redshirt on Holmes for the 2021 season.

It is unknown if he will enter the transfer portal at this time.
