Remember about a month ago when Chaz Elder was scheduled to announce between UGA and South Carolina and decided at the last minute to delay?
Fast forward to now and things are just about the same: The defensive back from Banneker High School has South Carolina as his leader, followed by UGA and Vanderbilt. Elder will likely pick a school toward the end or after his senior season.
“For the most part, it’s the same three schools with everybody chasing South Carolina … nothing has changed,” Banneker assistant Ryan Andrews said.
UGA had a chance to plead its case when Elder made an unofficial visit for the South Carolina game. That was likely Elder’s only recruiting trip during the season because Banneker has construction at the school, forcing it to move games to Saturdays at a neutral location.
Elder is back to health after missing two games with an ankle injury. In three games, Elder has 18 total tackles, 2 pass breakups and an interception he returned 25 yards for a touchdown.
What about the rumors about Tennessee jumping into the picture? “That’s just message board rumors, nothing there,” said Andrews, adding that Arizona State is trying to break into Elder’s top three.
