An unranked running back out of Atlanta picked up an offer from the Cats earlier this month, and his father has a very familiar face and one and half very familiar ears. His name is Elijah Holyfield, the son of boxing legend Evander Holyfield.
The class of 2016 prospect received his offer from Kentucky on May 6, one day before Ole Miss and Ohio State came calling with offers. He also has a scholarship at Tennessee, Wisconsin, Louisville and Indiana, among others, if he chooses. Georgia, Michigan and South Carolina are showing interest, too.
