Elder's Ready for First Official

Corn Elder is an elite athlete out of Nashville, Tenn. and he is heading west this weekend for his first official visit.

Plenty of schools are in pursuit of Scout300 running back Cornelius Elder and he is set to visit one of his favorites this weekend.

"I am taking an official visit to UCLA this weekend and it will be my first official visit," Corn Elder told Scout.

UCLA will get Elder on their campus and he is looking forward to the visit.

"I talk to them every week and they have been recruiting me pretty hard, so I want to get out there.

"I like the coaches there, I like that the school is in Los Angeles, and I really like how the new coaches have changed the team around."

The Bruins are on Elder's list and they are on the only school to have an official visit set up at this time.

"I know I will visit Ohio State officially, but I do not have a date set yet. It will probably be in December though.

"I have not picked the other three schools I am going to take official visits to yet," he said.

Elder is the No. 25 ranked running back on Scout and the 5-foot-10, 165 pound speedster out of Ensworth does not plan to make his decision until he takes all five official visits.

Chad Simmons is currently a National Recruiting Analyst for FOX Sports/Scout. He started with Scout in 2003 and then moved on to another Recruiting Service from 2004-2008 before returning to Scout the first of 2009 to become South Recruiting Manager.
