Ravontae Holt lost for season with ACL injury
CHEYENNE -- Wyoming's already thin defensive front took a massive hit Tuesday when Craig Bohl announced that junior defensive tackle Ravontae Holt will miss the entire 2019 season with an ACL tear.
This is Holt's second ACL tear since 2017.
Holt, a 6-foot, 4-inch, 272-pounder from Sacramento, played in all 12 games for the Cowboys in 2018, tallying 31 tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss. He also caused a fumble and recovered one.
Holt's best game came against Washington State where he recorded six tackles. He added another five against Air Force and New Mexico in the final two games of the season.
Holt added 10 pounds of muscle to his frame this offseason. He was expected to step in for departed players Youhanna Ghaifan, Carl Granderson and Kevin Prosser.
In 2017, Holt played in nine games, racking up nine tackles, a sack and a tackle for loss. He started three games as a true freshman.
Akili Bonner (freshman), Claude Cole (redshirt freshman), Cole Godbout (redshirt freshman), Alonzo Hall (freshman), Javaree Jackson (junior), Victor Jones (sophomore) and Mario Mora (redshirt freshman) are the remaining defensive tackles on the roster.
