Boro's Elder taking visit to Ohio State

NASHVILLE — Ensworth running back Corn Elder, a Murfreesboro resident, will take an official visit to Ohio State this weekend.
Elder took his first official visit to UCLA in November before leading the Tigers to their third straight Division II-AA title.
Ohio State, which was banned from the postseason because of NCAA sanctions, went 12-0 in coach Urban Meyer’s first season with the Buckeyes.
“He’s one of the best college football coaches right now,” Elder said. “He’s always had great teams. Always had great players, so it’s great to be able to be recruited by him. I’ll probably get to talk to him a little bit this weekend.”
Elder, a 5-foot-10, 165-pound senior who rushed for 2,618 yards and 39 touchdowns last season, likes the Buckeyes’ spread offense.
“The offense that they run kind of fits my style,” Elder said. “(They’re recruiting me) as a running back/slot receiver, kind of like they had with Percy Harvin when Urban Meyer was at Florida.”
Elder hasn’t scheduled any more official visits, but three are available to him under NCAA rules. National signing day is Feb. 6.
“Georgia Tech is definitely still in the mix,” Elder said. “Vanderbilt is still in the mix. Ole Miss is still in the mix, and I just talked to Auburn so I think I’ll give them a shot, too.”
Elder, whose 6,361 career yards rank ninth in state history, said his visit to UCLA went well.
“I loved the campus, I loved the coaching staff and it’s L.A.,” Elder said. “It’s a pretty tough decision, but I think I’ve got the right supporting cast to help me out in making the right decision. I’ve talked to most of the schools about playing both (football and basketball).”
Elder was the MVP in the past two state basketball tournaments, leading the Tigers to DII-AA titles both times.

Corn+Football+OhioState=a perfect world

"Percy Harvin" type, haha.
Gotta love it...Urban apparently uses that line with every single WR/RB that we have offers out to.
Ohio State Football:
6 Straight Big Ten Championships, 7 Straight Michigan Wins, 6 BCS Bowl Wins
Wouldn't you if you recruited and coached him? He's the top "positionless/all-purpose" player in the NFL today. All these kids know who he is and can envision themselves in that same role.
Because Urban says I will USE you .Ike I did Percy Harvin, he is NOT saying you are the NEXT Percy Harvin. Just like he tells future QB recruits, I will use you LIKE Braxton Miller..I.e. so many passes and designed runs per game..not they will be the next Braxton Miller.
Urban is recruited a lot kids that fit this ROLE, not the former player..
Are we EVER going to land our "Percy Harvin"?
we already have in Jalin marshall
