Ellerbe traveled to Athens, Georgia this weekend to visit the University of Georgia. "It went alright," stated Ellerbe in an interview with CUTigers.com.

When asked how the visit compared to his visit to Clemson, Ellerbe responded, "I'd say that it was about the same."

The North Carolina Shrine Bowl Defensive MVP is not ready to go on record with a leader at this time. Georgia, Clemson, Tennessee and North Carolina State all remain in the running for the talented defender.

Ellerbe still has 2 stops remaining on his official visit tour. The Rockingham star will visit Tennessee next weekend and travel to North Carolina State the following weekend.

The 6-0, 180 pound prospect does not expect to make his final decision for several weeks. "It will be late January or early February before I make my decision," stated the prize recruit.

Ellerbe and teammate Jamar Bryant are still discussing a package deal. "We're still trying to work it out so we can go to the same school," stated the talented prospect.
