RedHawk recruiting target Ricardo Johnson had his eyes on a state title. Johnson had told RedHawk Insider, "We lost in the (2008) title game so we know what it takes to get back." Johnson apparently did know what it takes as he led Holmes High School to the 2009 Kentucky state championship and earned MVP honors for his performance. His performance earned him an invite to visit Miami.

6'7" forward Elijah Pittman (2010) is part of a tandem that looks to win the Kentucky state championship. Along with his teammate and fellow junior Ricardo Johnson, the 205 pound standout has his eyes on "bringing the state championship home" to Holmes. Last year, Covington Holmes High School reached the title game before losing 57-48 to UK signee Darius Miller and the Mason County Royals.
