Thanks for posting this RB...and Welcome to the family EE!
WOW!! I've never seen a kid so SAD that he had to choose to go to Columbus. Clearly he was torn. But he must have really great parents to support his decision regardless of their loyalty.
Thanks for posting this. I like this young man already. He had a difficult decision after a long process. I'm glad he's now a member of Buckeye Nation.
Yeah, you could sense that he struggled with it all. Maybe wanting to please his parents or just growing up in the Tiger environment all his life or both. He made a grown up decision today. He's on his way to becoming a favorite of mine.
Wow! Now that is a great young man. Regardless of what he ever does on the football field we should all be glad he will represent our university!
A grown up decision with greats support by his family. I think he has grown today as a man and will continue to grow and become a great example of what it means to be a Buckeye.
Welcome to the Buckeye Nation..... EEEEEE. ZZZZZZ. EEEEEEE!!!!
I love this kid! I can really see him being a leader for this program! I think that in four years he is one of those guys getting the loudest cheers on senior day.
Wow what a fine young man and family a great addition to ,Buckeye Nation
Great posts by all!!
This is a fine young man.
I know that making the decision he did today is one of the hardest a kid can make.
Especially when you care so much about two....obviously great parents....who raised a real, straight forward young man.
The great thing is I believe he definitely chose to be where his heart told him he needed to be.
Welcome Mr. Elliott!! May your future be bright whatever endeavor you chose!
Kid is going to just shine as a Buckeye. Has great support in his parents.
I'm actually glad he was so torn on his decision. Shows his loyalty to the ones he cares about. Kid will play hard for his team. I see him as a great team leader.
What a great kid.
Wow, love this kid... learning tough lessons early. I got choked up watching it... Welcome Zeke!!!
"Buckeye born and bred, a Buckeye 'til I'm dead"
So glad EzE choose the Buckeyes. He's already a fan favorite. This class was great without him, special with him.
Love his hat)
Yeah Great kid great family! hell I shed a tear with the young man no lie very emotional decision.
i really liked that Lid he put on - i havnt seen 1 like that before...also...i didnt realize it was that difficult for him to make the choice but he will be much better off in the long run - he will gain experiences in c-bus that wouldnt be possible at Mizzou - such as...playing for championships & also getting coached up / prepped for after college...it is obvious that he is a good person & it will be an honor to watch him on saturdays
Hey Zeke...you're gonna live tOSU...they'll be the best years of your life. Welcome aboard Buck.
Great get and great young man still not sure why all the last minute drama though. It seemed to make it even harder for him to finally pull the trigger. Tough decsion either way.

After watching that video....
I definitely felt it's sincerity and didn't feel like there was any drama at all.....
I truthfully feel this kid took every single minute that he had to make the right decision.....and when you are young like that.....
One of the hardest lessens in life....which this young man gets......is that in regards to your love and dedication to your family, friends, team and community......those you care and love the most in your life.......
Saying no is 100 times more difficult than saying yes.
Choosing what's right for you when you know it's going to disappoint those you care about most is never an easy thing to do.....and it shows a tremendous amount of character this kid has.
He was obviously raised to not be a selfish person....and in making decisions take into consideration those who love you and surround you with support.
Truthfully the world needs more parents like his raising kids like this.
What a great kid. Before i didn't think it would be a big deal if we lost him.(from a talent standpoint) boy was i wrong. tOSU is getting MUCH more then just a talented football player. You can tell this kid plays with heart.
CONGRATS to you EEEEEE ZZZZZZZZZZZ EEEEEE
WOW. I didn't even bother to open this because I thought it was gonna be just another signing deal. I'm glad I did. You could tell how hard the decision was for him. I'm even more thrilled to have him here now.
Had to watch it again......
Probably the best commitment video/footage I've ever seen....
He's a humble, sincere and honest kid....
+1 sir...im out of up votes or i woulda hit you up
No worries I got him for you.
