Elliott goes silent

In April, St. Louis (Mo.) John Burroughs running back Ezekiel Elliott committed to Ohio State while on an unofficial visit to Columbus. After a weekend official to visit to Missouri, Elliott appears set to announce his final decision on National Signing Day.

"My signing ceremony is at my school at 3 pm. Everyone come out," Elliott tweeted around 9:30 PM Tuesday, later clarifying the date of his ceremony to by Feb. 6.

Two minutes later, Elliott tweeted again, "I will not be doing any interviews until Feb 6th on signing day."

Elliott, whose father played football at Missouri and mother ran track for the Tigers, took an official visit to Columbia on Jan. 25. Since the visit, he has not done interviews and has not discussed his commitment to the Buckeyes publicly, although it should be mentioned that Elliott's tweet referenced a signing ceremony instead of an announcement.

Elliott, a four-star recruit and the nation's 84th-ranked player, is also the top player in the state of Missouri for 2013. Although he hasn't publicly commented, it appears the only two teams still in the mix are Ohio State and Missouri. Texas also reached out to Elliott last week.

On Monday, Ohio State coaches visited Elliott at his school. Sources have told PowerMizzou.com that Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel is expected to make an in-home visit with the Elliotts sometime this week, although -- like much of his current recruitment -- that has yet to be confirmed.
