Chaz Elder Commits To South Carolina Over Georgia Bulldogs

Chaz Elder

Chaz Elder did as everyone expected and chose South Carolina.

Chaz Elder, one of the top defensive backs in the country, chose the South Carolina Gamecocks over the Georgia Bulldogs, and the Vanderbilt Commodores during the Under Armour All-America Game. Elder is from College Park (Ga.) Banneker High School. He had long been thought to favor South Carolina. He visited South Carolina on November 25th and visited Georgia on December 9th.

At 6'2" and 185 pounds, Elder looks like a tall cornerback. And that might be what he is at the next level. But Elder also could be an excellent safety. Elder is all about range. He can cover a lot of ground from his safety position. If he plays corner at the next level, it will need to be in a scheme that plays a lot of zone coverage, as he doesn't have the hips to play man-to-man as a cornerback. Elder displays great skills playing the ball as well.
