UK’s flurry of football commitments from Ohio continued Sunday with a pledge from 6-foot-7 wide receiver Dakota Holtzclaw.
Holtzclaw was in Lexington on Saturday for UK’s “junior day” festivities, and he picked up a scholarship offer from the Wildcats during that trip. Scout.com and 247Sports both consider him a three-star prospect in the class of 2016, and 247Sports ranks him as the No. 42 player from Ohio in the rising senior class.
Duke was his only other scholarship offer from a “power five” conference, though he also had offers from Cincinnati and several Mid-American Conference schools. He was getting increased interest from Big Ten and ACC programs.
