LB Dannell Elerbe
6-1, 181, 4.6
Rockingham County High School
Rockingham, North Carolina
When asked how does it feel to compete against the best players in the Tarheel state this week, all-star linebacker Dannell Ellerbe seems to be taking it all in stride.
"It feels alright," said Ellerbe. "Really, it's not that much of change for me."
In terms of recruiting, the Richmond County standout is not ready to go on record with a clear cut leader. "My favorites are Tennessee, Georgia, Clemson and North Carolina State," stated the prize recruit. Ellerbe stated that he has offers from all of his favorites.
Clemson Coach Mike O'Cain paid a visit to Rockingham last week to visit with the superstar defender. "Coach O'Cain came by the school and my home last week. It went alright."
The 6-1, 185 pound speedster plans to wait until he takes all of his official visits to make a decision. "I have visits with all of my favorites scheduled for January. I will be at Clemson on January 9th with my teammate Jamar."
Ellerbe said that he would like to play with his teammate Jamar Bryant next year on the collegiate level if possible. The senior defender also enjoyed the visit to the hospital with his Shrine Bowl teammates last Sunday. "It was good. It taught us a lot."
And here's a bit of interesting news: it looks like the South Carolina squad maybe getting the better end of the all-star game festivities. At least, according to Ellerbe.
"They treat South Carolina like kings down here. We went to the fish camp for dinner the other night. We got there first and ordered first. South Carolina ordered after we did and they got their food and finished before we even got our food."
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding defender from North Carolina, right up through signing day 2004.
