Elliot closing in on first official offer

Houston (Texas) Alief Taylor athlete Donte Elliott did a little bit of everything for his team and has already earned his first verbal offer.
The 6-foot, 180-pounder is primarily a safety, but filled in at quarterback for his team this year when they're starting quarterback went down with injury. Elliot found out earlier this month from this coach that his first official offer may be on it's way.
"Oklahoma State called my coach and he said they were going to offer," Elliot said. "I haven't received the paperwork yet though. I was very happy about it."
Currently the Cowboys sit above the rest.
"Oklahoma State is up there, yes," Elliot said. "Whenever I get the offer, I was thinking about making a commitment. After that, I'm really interested in Kansas, LSU, and some others."
"I just like OSU's recruiting class from last year. It was very good. They have potential by the time that I come up there and I just want to be a part of the program."
So far Elliot has only been to the Rivals.com Junior Day in Houston, Texas a few weeks ago. He doesn't have any other plans as far as college visits go.
Most schools like his ability as a defender and Elliot agrees.
"I'd like to play safety actually because it utilizes my athletic ability," Elliot said. "I just like to cover and make plays."
Elliot says his junior defensive stats included 25 solo tackles, two forced fumbles, and two tackles for loss.
