Elliott Berry recruit scouting report: In search of a position

Bud Elliott (SB Nation)

Elliott is the younger brother of Eric Berry.

Elliot Berry is the younger sibling of former Tennessee Volunteers standout Eric Berry, and plays alongside his twin brother Evan at Creekside High School (GA). Elliot is a consensus three-star safety prospect in the class of 2014 with offers from LSU, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Clemson, Tennessee, Auburn, Missouri and Kentucky.

He stands 5'11, weighs 200 pounds and is considered a three-star recruit by 247Sports, Rivals and Scout. He is ranked as the No. 70 safety prospect in the country by 247Sports, and the No. 80 overall player from the state of Georgia. Elliot plans to attend the same college as Evan.

You can find him on Twitter here.

Bud Elliott, National Recruiting Analyst: Elliott is pretty clearly the lesser of the Berry twins. In high school, he plays running back and defensive end. He'll do neither in college.

Berry lines up in a three-point stance for his high school, and uses his speed to burn high school offensive tackles. While he can't do that in college due to his size, he can definitely use his speed and quickness. Berry does not have great hip flexibility and agility, but he does play hard.

I think Berry will fit best as a will linebacker, or perhaps a third safety in a 4-2-5 type defense. He doesn't have the frame to hold a lot more weight, but is active and fairly athletic. He could also contribute early on special teams. I do not see him contributing early as a defender at the BCS level, but rather taking a redshirt.

Look through SB Nation's many excellent college football blogs to find your team's community.
