Running Back Elijah Holyfield
Elijah Holyfield is a running back that has been covered by Dawn of the Dawg. He is the son of former heavyweight boxing champion of the world Evander Holyfield. The 4-Star back out of Woodward Academy (Atlanta, Georgia) has dozens of offers from many top-name college football programs including Auburn and Alabama. Georgia has built a cordial relationship with him, but Auburn has really been pushing hard to try to sway him to play for the Tigers and many believe he is “War Eagle” bound as can be indicated by the 59% chance indications per the 247Sports Crystal Ball prediction that he picks Auburn.
Georgia will not go down without a fight to land him, though because of the need for the Dawgs to keep stockpiling the running game and the fact that he comes in as the 7th overall RB and the 17th overall prospect in the state of Georgia for the 2016 Class per 247Sports.com Composite Rankings. Look for Holyfield to be impressive and ignite a lot of coverage at The Opening and Georgia will have to keep fingers crossed that this guy stays in-state.
