"I have committed to Ohio State," Elliott stated. "It was the right school for me, both for football and academically. I fell in love on my visit. Coach (Urban) Meyer is a great man, who is going to do great things for the program, and I want to be a part of it."
As a junior, Elliott rushed for over 1,800 yards, had 400 receiving yards, and scored 42 touchdowns. He is currently ranked as the number-nine rated runningback in America.
