Besides him who else is on the campus??
Elder is the top non-committed prospect for us according to Scout. At 165 lbs and 4.42 40, he would be a great AB. Scout has us fourth on the list but hopefully that will change this weekend for the better. Great that he is coming because it means he is serious about us this late in the process.

Man, that kid can put his foot in the ground as good as anybody. Great change of direction. Reminds me a little of JT with the ball in his hands.
Elder not coming this weekend. Changed to next weekend, wants to go to basketball game during visit...
What do you really expect from a university like UGA where the four-legged, testicle-licking mascot is smarter (and more well-mannered) than 95% of the criminal student-athletes and their drunken fans?

I was not blown away by Elder's DB highlights. I think he's a RB all the way.
He's a "pony back" but an immensely talented one. Change of direction skills, open field vision, initial burst.... he's got all of it. He's athletic enough that blocking shouldn't be an issue, as long as he dedicates himself to it.
Potential game-changer at AB.
Related: Our top rushing output by an AB in one season is still Roddy's 690 in 2008. Orwin had 682 this year and, without the injuries, would surely have had way more than that. I think a guy like Elder could potentially be a 1000+ yard guy.
