Jay Ellison has Georgia Tech among his four finalists, along with Auburn, South Carolina and Ole Miss.
The 6-2, 295-pound defensive lineman from Harris County High School attended Georgia Tech’s camp in July and has been keeping in contact with the Yellow Jackets. “I have a real good feeling about Georgia Tech. I like the coaches, and the atmosphere is great.”
Georgia Tech is recruiting Ellison to play nose tackle or defensive inside, and right now he “prefers the inside.”
There’s also an outside chance that UGA may get involved. The Bulldogs, which haven’t offered yet, spoke to Ellison about a year ago about playing offensive line, and they’ve have limited contacted since. However, Ellison plans to attend UGA’s season-opener against Buffalo, and may try to talk again with the coaches. “I really want to play defensive line, but I will play offensive line, too,” Ellison said. “Then again, I’d really like to stay on the defensive side of the ball.”
Ellison said one of the biggest attractions to UGA is playing with his former high school teammate, freshman linebacker Jordan Jenkins.
Ellison, who is nicknamed “Baby” because of his youthful looks, has a 3.2 GPA and plans to major in accounting. Ellison hasn’t set a decision date but will likely commit to a school during his senior season.
THIS JUST IN …
FOOTBALL SEASON IS ALMOST HERE
