"I like the caoching staff at Ole Miss and the new facility is one of the best in the country. I like what is happening at Ole Miss and want to be a part of it," said Elliott.

Elliott became the fourth commitment for 2007, joining South Panola LB Chris Strong, Trinity Episcopal Day School RB/LB Stevan Ridley and South Panola FB Jeramie Griffin on the quickly-growing list.
