Michigan State offers 2026 3-star CB Joshua Holland II

A talented defensive back from St. John Bosco High School in California, Joshua Holland II has turned heads not only for his exceptional skills on the field, but also for his potential to make a significant impact at the collegiate level.

On Sunday, Holland announced on X, formerly known as Twitter, that he has been offered by Michigan State.

According to 247Sports’ composite rankings, Holland is the No. 39 class of 2026 recruit in California and the No. 29 cornerback in his class. He has also received offers from Georgia, Oklahoma, Washington and USC, among others.

At 6-foot-4 and 175 pounds, Holland has the physical attributes needed to excel as a defensive back. His agility and speed, combined with his length, allow him to cover receivers effectively, while his strong tackling ability makes him a reliable defender in both pass coverage and run support. These qualities are essential for any successful defensive unit at the college level, especially in a competitive conference like the Big Ten, which is about to become a lot harder to succeed in.

What sets Holland apart goes beyond his physical abilities; it’s his football IQ and instincts on the field. He is known for his ability to read plays and anticipate movements. He is often in the right position to make critical plays or disrupt the opponent’s attack.

Michigan State’s interest in Holland means it recognizes its potential to strengthen its defense. The Spartans, known for their sturdy defensive tradition, would benefit greatly from Holland’s skills and leadership. His commitment to excellence both on and off the field aligns with the values ​​of the Michigan State football program, emphasizing discipline, hard work and teamwork.

For Holland, receiving an offer from Michigan State is not only an accomplishment, but it should be an exciting opportunity to showcase his talents at the next level. His dedication to improving his game and his commitment to academic excellence make him not only a standout athlete, but also a well-rounded student-athlete.

As he weighs his options and considers the opportunities before him, Holland remains focused on further refining his skills and preparing for the challenges of college football. His journey from St. John Bosco High School to a possible Spartan reflects his determination and perseverance in pursuing his dreams.
