Elliott likes ECU

Dawsonville (Ga.) Atlanta Sports Academy 2014 wide receiver Devin Elliott is closing in on a commitment and ECU is in his top schools. Inside ECU Sports spoke with him about the Pirates.

Devin Elliott is one of the top prep school wide receivers in the nation and has a ton of offers to choose from. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound standout at wide receiver broke the 1,000 yard mark this season and added nine receiving touchdowns.

College programs have had Elliott on their radars since early on and it has translated into a laundry list of offers.

The programs to extend offers to Elliott are Florida Atlantic, Middle Tennessee, Mississippi State, Memphis, Arkansas State, Indiana State, Kent State, Marshall, Minnesota, Southern Miss, Troy, UAB, Wake Forest and ECU.

The Pirates have stayed consistent in Elliott's recruitment and it's beginning to pay off.

"(ECU recruiting coordinator) Donnie Kirkpatrick has kept in great contact with my coach and I," said Elliott. "ECU still stands in my top choices right now. The coaching staff mentioned I remind them of (ECU WR) Justin Hardy."

Elliott's top list of schools is as follows: ECU, Middle Tennessee, Memphis, Minnesota and Florida Atlantic. He was planning on committing to a school relatively soon, but has since changed his mind.

This recruit plans to wait until National Signing Day on Feb. 5, 2014 to make his college choice. As far as visits go, Elliott will take an official visit to Memphis on Jan. 17. Him and his coach are also trying to plan a January visit to ECU.

With potential visits coming up and other schools showing interest, it makes sense that Elliott's recruitment will come down to the wire.

He believes more schools that have shown interest could offer soon.

"Purdue, UCF, and TCU contact me a lot," said Elliott. "I think TCU and Purdue could be next to offer since I've pushed my commitment until February 5th."

If more schools extend offers to Elliott it will likely shake up his recruitment, but for now ECU has a good chance of landing him if he has a successful visit.
