DL Jay Ellison (6-2 295) of Hamilton, GA has released a top four of USC, Auburn, Georgia Tech and Ole Miss with Auburn and Tech the current front runners. “I’m hearing a lot from them,” Ellison said.
USC recruiter Lorenzo Ward checked him out at his spring game and Ellison said they have talked a couple of times since then. He has not yet visited USC but plans to come in for a game. He was at Georgia this past weekend.
“I really like the coaches and want to get there and see what it’s like,” Ellison said of USC. “I’ve watched them play a bunch. They have an amazing defense. I like how they handle their defensive line.”
Ellison did visit Georgia Tech over the summer and he might get back to The Flats Saturday for the first home game. Ellison said he also has offers from Tennessee, Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, Pittsburgh, Syracuse and North Carolina.
Last season he had 59 tackles and 6 sacks.
