Countdown to College Football: #18

Believe it or not, we are only 18 days away from kicking off the 2017 college football season. It’s time to start making plans for that opening weekend watch party. We are in the final stretch, but as we get closer to August 26th, the days are starting to drag by. We might as well do something to pass the time so let’s continue our look at our consensus Top 25 Devy prospects with our 18th ranked player:


Name: Elijah Holyfield
School: Georgia
Position: RB
Height: 5’11″
Weight: 215 lbs
Class: Sophomore


Overall: 18
Positional: 8
2018 Class: 3

Elijah Holyfield joined a crowded backfield in 2016. He’ll be part of a crowded backfield in 2017. Assuming no one decommits or transfers out, he’ll be part of a crowded backfield in 2018 and 2019 as well. Holyfield found the field in just 3 games last season and barely had anything to show for it. Hopefully, he’s more involved in 2017, even with Nick Chubb and Sony Michel both returning for their senior seasons.

Hey, he only has 6 career carries…
