Three still in the mix for Elliott

Okolona running back Robert Elliott was an early commitment to Ole Miss, but has never officially closed things out. Two other schools have continued to recruit him and still have an outside chance.

"My commitment is still the same, but I am still looking at Mississippi State and Florida State," he said. "I am sill committed, but I am still looking to see what those schools have to offer. I am just looking at them because those are the three schools that are recruiting me the hardest right now."
