Lendy Holmes' father has reportedly told the Dallas Morning News that Holmes most likely will not play in the Fiesta Bowl because he is academically ineligible. While there is still hope he could clear before the end of the month we are most likely looking at Dominique Franks getting 100% of the playing time at the cornerback position opposite Marcus Walker.
Holmes had been moved from safety/nickelback to corner in order to replace Reggie Smith who is sitting out of the Fiesta Bowl with a broken toe.
Senior Darien Williams, who started at safety last year, is slated to fill the safety spot left void when Holmes transitioned back to the corner position. West Virginia isn't known as even resembling a passing team but you have to think that they'll at least be tempted to take some shots down field with two backups now starting in the secondary.
