Elijah Holyfield, the son of boxing great Evander Holyfield, is expected to take an unofficial visit to Louisville on Saturday afternoon before heading to Kentucky on Sunday, according to Steve Jones of The Courier-Journal.

The 5-11, 194-pounder from Woodward Academy (Atlanta, GA) is considered one of the better running backs in the Class of 2016. According to 247Sports, Holyfield has scholarship offers from established programs such as Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Wisconsin, Tennessee and Ohio State, in addition to the Cardinals and the Wildcats. Georgia and Michigan have also been actively pursuing him, and Holyfield grew up a Bulldogs fan.

Both Louisville and Kentucky have also offered a scholarship to Holyfield's teammate, cornerback Antone Williams.
