Holmes, a fifth-year senior starting his final home game for the Trojans this weekend against No. 1 Notre Dame, earned a 3.31 GPA and is now pursuing a post-graduate degree at USC. He earned first-team honors; Barkley has registered a 3.21 GPA in his communications major and was named to the second team.
Football players have to post at least a 3.0 GPA and contribute to their teams to earn Pac-12 all-academic honors.
Only Arizona State, with just one player, had fewer honorees than the Trojans.
