Elliott anxious to see FSU for the first time

Ole Miss commitment talks about the latest in his recruitment with RenegadeReport.com. Do the Seminoles have a chance when he visits on January 19?

Growing up, Robert Elliott enjoyed watching the Florida State Seminoles.

Now on the verge of choosing a college to play football, the Okolona, Miss. tailback is set to take a visit to his childhood favorite in just over a month.

"I will be down there (to Tallahassee) on the 19th of January," Elliott told RenegadeReport.com. "I've never been there but I am excited to see it."

Elliott, who is rated a four-star tailback by Scout.com, committed to Ole Miss this past January and has remained solid in his decision.

But does FSU have a chance to change his mind?

"Yeah, I just have to see how comfortable I am there," Elliott said. "That's the thing about Ole Miss, I feel at home there. I have to feel that same way down there."

What else does the 6-foot-1 and 187-pound prospect hope to learn about FSU when he makes the trip next month?

"I just want to see the atmosphere and take it all in," he said. "I want to see how I am with all the players. I don't know any of the guys down there so I have to see how we get along.

"I also want to see about the academics and if there is an opportunity for me to play. I want to be able to contribute as soon as possible."

After a disappointing season and the uncertain status of the offensive coordinator at FSU, some may think that those factors are hurting the recruitment of offensive talent.

For Elliot, however, that doesn't appear to be the case.

"I am not too concerned about it," he said. "I know they will get somebody good but I haven't really thought about it too much."

Elliott carries a 2.87 GPA and says he is on pace to qualify. He earned a 16 on his ACT and will take it again with the hopes of raising it a few points.

He finished his senior season at Okolona High with over 1,700 yards rushing and 18 touchdowns. He was also a receiving threat out of the backfield with over 300 yards amassed on 17 catches.
