Texas junior-college tight end Steven Borden made an official visit to Kentucky over the weekend.

Borden, an all-conference player for Kilgore College, is the son of famous professional wrestler Sting (Steve Borden).

According to an article written by Steve Jones of USA Today, the younger Borden is constantly asked about his father and his fame.

"I was kind of born into it, so I don't really know anything different," said Borden, who said his dad has shown him some of his moves in the ring. "I guess it's unique experience, but for me it's just life."

Borden's father accompanied him Saturday for part of his visit to Lexington.

Borden said the Wildcats are No. 1 on his list.

The JUCO tight end could be the first commitment for Mark Stoops.
