Mikah Holder, whose twin brother Alijah made a verbal commitment Tuesday to play at Stanford, has committed to play football next season at San Diego State.

The 6-foot, 175-pound Mikah Holder is a receiver/defensive back. He had 42 receptions for 825 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior last season.

"The recruiting process has been really stressful on the Holders," said Oceanside football coach John Carroll. "Alijah and Mikah are the classic twins.

"They do everything together.

"Hopefully, they have one more great season together with us, then college football will break the brothers up."

While Mikah and Alijah will play at different schools, Mikah's commitment will unite him with the twin's older brother King, a junior defensive back at San Diego State.

King Holder had 33 tackles, a sack, 2 1/2 tackles for losses and an interception for the Aztecs last season.

Mikah Holder joins a large contingent of Oceanside High players at San Diego State that includes his brother, linebacker Jake Fely, defensive lineman Kenny Galea'i and defensive backs Rene Siluano and J.J. Whittaker.

Whittaker's brother Jace recently committed to Arizona, giving Oceanside three college commitments so far.
