It's been a very quiet offseason for three-star Fairburn (Ga.) Creekside athlete Elliot Berry, who has kept camp apperances and visits to a minimum. But he did pop up last weekend at the IMG 7-on-7 National Championship tournament, where he played with the Cam Newton All-Stars.
"It's just good to be around all this great competition," Berry said. "It's kind of a tool to gauge where you are and what you need to work on. This is kind of like my camp."
Berry has offers from several schools, including Tennessee (where his older brother Eric was a defensive star), Georgia, LSU and others.
"I really don't have any top list right now," Berry said. "I'm just kind of open right now and trying to be patient."
Instead of participating in on-campus events or taking unofficial visits, Berry has spent the offseason getting ready for his senior season.
"I'm just trying to practice with my school," Berry said. "I want to get stronger, get faster, work on what I can work on. I don't really have time to go to camps."
Berry said he had hoped to attend camp at Miami, but missed it because of the tournament. Next month he plans of visiting Tennessee.
"I missed Miami's camp, that was one I wanted to go to," He said. "But I'll probably end up going to Tennessee's camp next month."
Berry said the Vols continue to push the hardest, but stopped short of declaring them his leader. Berry and his twin brother Evan intend to play together at the next level.
