"We did an official visit over the weekend, and it was one of those things where some schools started calling like Boston College, Iowa State," said Carlos Green, a St. Frances assistant and Holmes' uncle. "But Marshall just ... wanted him really bad. They were real consistent in his recruitment. The head coach, as soon as he got the job, he called the next day. He wanted to come and see Dante. The assistant coach was consistent in calling and it was just a real good fit."
