"My visits are over - I'm tired. I have enjoyed travelling with my Mom, she deserved some trips, but I have been bleeding Red & Blue for a year now and I'm going to be a Rebel," said Elliott, fresh off his latest official visit to Mississippi State.
Elliott, the 6-1, 200-pound speedster who is rated a 4-star prospect by Scout.com, has been the subject of constant and relentless rumors the past few weeks about him backing off of his commitment to Ole Miss.
"None of them were true. Every time you guys (Scout) called me, I told you the same thing - I was committed to Ole Miss," he laughed. "I am very excited to be a Rebel. It's done - over."
Elliott said he will take no more visits and hopes the Rebel coaching staff continues to get top recruits.
"Some people said I was worried about Ole Miss recruiting Joe McKnight, but that's not me. I hope we sign him. I love to compete and let the best man play. Who knows? We might be in the backfield at the same time," he said. "I want anything that will help the program. I'll find a spot on the field."
After months of speculation and nail-biting by the Rebel faithful over rumor after rumor, Elliott has closed the door.
He will be a Rebel!
Elliott holds Reb commitment!
