What type of Holly is this?

It doesn’t seem to be very sought after and it is quite prevalent in the southern United States. Every time I have seen it growing it was just a volunteer sprout that came up in the middle of nowhere. The points on this Holly are extremely sharp and I have never seen it being sold at any nursery before.

    It's known as Chinese Holly (Ilex cornuta). Burford Holly is a cultivar of this same species of holly (Ilex cornuta 'Burfordii') with rounded leaves and only a single point at the end.

    Looks like Buddy Holley to me.

    It looks like may be a Buford (?) holly.  Not very popular because it is difficult to trim with hedge clippers.
