My Take

Jordan Elliott is one of the most heavily recruited defensive tackles in America.  He and his family are a huge priority for Charlie Strong and the rest of the Texas Longhorn coaching staff. Elliott has visited Austin numerous times and will continue to visit with the coaching staff building relations.  Michigan and Oklahoma could be a serious contender down the road but the Texas coaching staff has done a great job to date and will turn the heat up during the stretch run to National Signing Day.  If I had to pick the final destination for the 6-foot-3, 300-pound Elliott it would be the Longhorns.

Scout.com Take

Athletic enough to play defensive end and powerful enough to play inside and take on the double team as a defensive tackle. Very quick off the ball, and you often forget that he is a legit 300-pounder moving around the way he is. Very smooth and plays with a low center of gravity making it tough for offensive linemen to out position him. Could be scheme versatile in college and play in many defenses, and that is why offers poured in for him. GP
