ESPN 300 running back Cornelius "Corn" Elder (Nashville, Tenn./Ensworth) has another scholarship offer to consider.
Elder said today he received a scholarship offer this week from Auburn. To get Elder's commitment, the Tigers and new coach Gus Malzahn have some serious work to do.
Elder hasn't presented a list of finalists among the many schools that have offered him a scholarship, but clearly some have worked their way to the top. The 5-foot-10, 170-pound prospect took an official visit to UCLA in November and plans to take an official visit to Ohio State in January.
The No. 2 prospect in Tennessee and No. 204 prospect in the country has already visited Ohio State once. He has also spoken highly of a visit to Georgia Tech and is also considering nearby Vanderbilt. Elder could play several positions in college, including slot receiver, running back or defensive back.
