Top247 ‘24 five-star in the composite rankings Elijah Rushing is making his way through the south taking in some top programs on his radar. The ability to see what these places offer academically, campus life and meet the staffs in person as well as getting a feel for where they see him fitting from a football perspective are what why are looking for during these visits per his father George.
Georgia is first up with Elijah having developed a good relationship with outside linebacker coach Chidera Uzo-Diribe. The opportunity to take football and get to know each other more is something that he wants to take in.
Clemson is a chance to get to meet them face to face and take in the lay of the land of the Tigers program.
Tennessee is an opportunity to see what the Vols are like staff wise and to meet and spend time with defensive coordinator Tim Banks and defensive line coach
These visits along with maybe one more can possibly vault some of these schools in the mind of Rushing as he is doing his research before pairing his list down. The top edge rusher on the west coast has made visits to a few of the top schools in the West and Midwest during the spring so now by taking a look at these schools he can compare notes.
