Suspended indefinitely last year, Kavahra Holmes has decided to make this latest separation from LSU permanent. Maybe.
In a tweet posted to his personal Twitter account, the defensive back wrote the following: “Its been great LSU, but its a new start of my life.. Thanks to all the coaches and fam here!” That tweet was posted at 6:13 p.m. ET Monday; it has since been deleted.
LSU has not commented on Holmes’ status with the program.
Late last October, Holmes was arrested and charged with simple battery following a verbal altercation on campus that turned physical. He was suspended indefinitely shortly after the arrest and did not see the field the remainder of the year, although he has been participating in spring practice.
In 2013, Holmes, a three-star member of LSU’s 2012 recruiting class, played in one game after redshirting as a true freshman the year before.
