Alabama Football Recruiting: Four-Star RB Has Tide In Top Five

Four-star running back Elijah Holyfield (College Park, GA), the top running back in the state of Georgia, has the Alabama Crimson Tide as one of his five finalists along with Auburn, Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Holyfield told 247sports what he likes about each of the five schools: 

"Alabama - because they have had so much success in recent years, Georgia because they are in-state, Tennessee because I really like Coach Gillespie, South Carolina because I have teammates there now and Auburn because it feels like home every time I go." 

The 5'10", 204-pounder is ranked as the No. 5 running back in the country and No. 173 prospect in the 2016 class. 

Holyfield plans announce his decision on September 4 at his high school, and won't take any visits before then.
