The rise of the younger Emmitt Smith continues.
Emmitt “EJ” Smith Jr., the son of the Hall of Fame Cowboys back, took a notably significant step forward Tuesday when Smith Jr. received a scholarship offer from his father’s alma mater at the University of Florida.
Smith Jr., who already holds scholarship offers from the likes of Arkansas, Georgia and Ohio State, was clearly excited about his latest collegiate opportunity, though perhaps not as excited as his father, as you can see in the Tweet below:
I am blessed to say that I have received an offer to go to the University of Florida. Thank you for the opportunity. @SkysTheLimitWR @EJHolland247 @DemetricDWarren @Jason_Howell @FloridaGators @CoachDanMullen pic.twitter.com/RDUKwxGSif
