It will be a big week for four-star running back Cornelius Elder this week. After picking up a basketball offer from Purdueover the weekend, Elder will take two official visits for football this week.

"I will be visiting Auburn on Wednesday and Thursday, then I will come back home to play a basketball game Friday night. I will then leave for Georgia Techon Saturday to visit them Saturday and Sunday," Elder told Scout on Monday.

Elder has already taken official visits to Ohio State and UCLA already. Ole Missis another school that still could be in the mix.

The 5-foot-10, 165 pound athlete out of Nashville (Tenn.) Ensworth will likely meet with basketball coaches at Auburn and Georgia Tech this week too. Basketball is very important to him.

"I would like to play both sports in college. I have always loved basketball, but I like football a lot too. I know I could play both, so that is pretty important to me."

The two-sport star will likely announce his decision on signing day, February 6.
