Notre Dame held its first Junior Day of 2015 on Saturday. Dozens of the top recruits in the 2016 class made their way to South Bend, Ind., to check out the Fighting Irish's facilities and meet with coaches. 

One recruit who made the trip has a pretty famous father, whom he brought with him. 

Elijah Holyfield, a four-star running back out of Atlanta, is the son of former five-time heavyweight world champion Evander Holyfield. Elijah and Evander were both at Notre Dame this afternoon. 

That's pretty cool.

Elijah Holyfield, ranked the No. 11 RB in the country by 247 Sports' Composite Rankings, is reportedly considering Auburn, Notre Dame, Florida and Tennessee, among other programs.
