ESPN 300 Cornelius Elder talks visits

By Dave Hooker

Alabama fans need not lament the fact that Cornelius "Corn" Elder did not visit Tuscaloosa last weekend as previously planned. The Crimson Tide are still very much in the hunt for the ESPN 300 running back from Nashville (Tenn.) Ensworth.

Elder won't visit any schools this weekend, but told ESPN that he plans on visiting Alabama at some point. The four-star prospect is set to visit Ohio State on Oct. 20 and UCLA in November.

For now, the race seems wide open for Elder, who has expressed an interest in playing basketball in college as well.

“I don't have a leader,” Elder stated via text message.

Elder's recruitment is a bit behind other top prospects. He didn't take many visits during the summer so he could focus on AAU basketball. Elder spoke highly of last weekend's visit to Georgia Tech, partly because the school could provide an opportunity to play basketball in the ACC.
