Cleveland (OH) Glenville senior defensive end Jayrone Elliott had an extremely impressive season in 2009, helping lead his team to the state title game. Elliott has narrowed his choices to two schools, and is planning an announcement this coming Friday. Bill Greene has the latest in this three-star recruit.

Cleveland Glenville senior defensive end Jayrone Elliott had a fantastic senior season, culminating in the Tarblooders losing to Hilliard Davidson in the state championship game.

Elliott a three-star recruit, has narrowed his college choices down to two schools, and will be announcing his decision shortly.

"I'm now down to two schools, Toledo and Bowling Green," Elliott announced Tuesday afternoon. "I really feel basically the same about both schools, and they're only 15 miles apart. Bowling Green is coming off a close bowl loss, and I loved the campus and the facilities. They seem like a program that will only get better, and I felt really comfortable being around the players and the coaches."

"The Toledo head coach, Tim Beckman, told me a lot about his coaching experience," he said. "He's been at a lot of great schools, and I can tell he's a great coach. I have a lot of friends playing there, and they have a large recruiting class coming in next year. I think I could be a part of something big if I would go there."

Elliott, 6-foot-3, 215-pounds, admits he has a tough choice facing him, and he's having a hard time differentiating between the two schools.

"I don't know how to pick out these schools from the other," he stated. "I will talk to (head coach) Ted Ginn, and see where he thinks the best place for me is. I was even thinking about flipping a coin, because I know I can be happy at either place, but I won't do that. I'm just going to be in serious thought about this over the next few days, and I will be ready to go by the end of the week. I will make my decision later on in the day this Friday."
