WATCH: This Little Kid’s Emotive Reaction To His Football Star Uncle’s College Choice Is Priceless


Before being blown out by Clemson in last week’s college football playoff semifinal, Ohio State put together an impressive 11-1 campaign. Meanwhile the UCLA Bruins floundered and went 4-8.

So maybe this youngster’s hilarious live reaction to his uncle- five-star cornerback Darnay Holmes- choosing UCLA over the Buckeyes was more justifiable than the decision itself.

It all went down at the US Army All-American Bowl. Holmes is a Calabasas, California native who is the top cornerback in his class and #9 player overall according to Scout.

This is definitely a great talent haul for coach Jim Mora Jr. and UCLA, but if the Bruins head man is anything like his old man, he’ll hope you hold off on the playoff talk for now.

As despondent as Holmes’ nephew became, you have to wonder if Urban Meyer was hitting up the little guy all the time to try to get an upper-hand in recruiting his uncle. I’m obviously joking around, but when it comes to Urban Meyer and recruiting, would that scenario really surprise you?
