One of our outstanding young prospects at the wide receiver position,Ã‚Â Dakota HoltzclawÃ‚Â from Worthington Kilbourne HS in Worthington, Ohio has received multiple D1 offers. This 6’7″ 220 lbs. athletic and dominating wide out has demanded double coverage most of his Junior year but has risen to the task and is looking forward to a spring and summer with Coach Sink to become even a more skilled and aggressive force on the outside for this very talented and well coached central Ohio high school. Big dreams and lots of hard work make for wonderful endings and I believe Dakota’s high school career is just beginning. Dakota has made a verbal commitment to Kentucky. Along with that, the attention he is receiving is a pretty impressive group with Ohio State , Michigan State, Michigan, Bowling Green, Georgia, Toledo, Northwestern, and Baylor all showing more than casual interests at this point. He has, in addition to his WR skills, a bonus for all the interested programs, as he has also performed well at the DE position and is an excellent D1 punting prospect. The most exciting part of Dakota is that he has his priorities in order and is building his whole life concept with taking care of his Physical, Mental and Spiritual side.

WHAT IS THERE TO LIKE?Ã‚Â Right off the bat, Holtzclaw is intriguing because of his 6-foot-7, 215-pounds, frame. He also appears to have above average speed and athletic ability. He has the ability to run by people, or go up and over defensive backs to get the football at its highest point. He should eventually be a first-down machine, and of course an excellent red zone target.

HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 6-7 and enjoyed getting to meet some of the University of Kentucky basketball players during his recent visit to UK, but Dakota Holtzclaw has always been a football player and never a basketball player.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“No, football has always been my sport,Ã¢â‚¬ said Holtzclaw. Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve always been tall, but did hit a growth spurt around age 13. But I was just never really interested in basketball. Meeting the Kentucky players was kind of a big deal. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t watch a lot of games, but that was pretty cool and exciting because I know how good they are.Ã¢â‚¬
However, it was an even bigger deal when he decided to give his verbal commit to UKÃ¢â‚¬Ë†football coach Mark Stoops. The three-star wide receiver got a scholarship offer while visiting UKÃ¢â‚¬Ë†over the weekend with his parents and decided to accept the offer almost immediately
