Son of pro wrestler Sting deciding between Kentucky and Texas Tech in 2013.

Here's one from the "things that will make you feel old department." Steven Borden, a JUCO tight end and son of professional wrestling legend Sting, is mulling committing to either Kentucky or Texas Tech next season. Borden currently is enrolled at Kilgore College in Texas. Kentucky looks have the edge of the two FCS schools.

"Borden said he met with new head coach Mark Stoops, Brown and tight ends coach Vince Marrow and was hosted on his visit by UK offensive lineman Zach West.

“I enjoyed it, and I’m excited about Kentucky,” Borden said. “Pretty much all across the board I liked it. I liked Coach Stoops a lot. Obviously I know Coach Brown is pretty intelligent and is one of the best just when it comes to offensive minds. Coach Marrow … I know he is a great coach as well. … It’s SEC ball, too. You can’t get much bigger than that.”

He said his famous dad was in Lexington for part of the day on Saturday and liked UK as well."

Borden claims he knows all his father's wrestling moves. The bad news is that the Scorpion Death Lock is probably banned by the NCAA.
