Ensworth's two-sport star Corn Elder signs with Miami

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Ensworth two-sport star Cornelius "Corn" Elder will be heading to Coral Gables to play for the Miami Hurricanes.

On Wednesday, Elder picked Miami over Ohio State, Nebraska, Tennessee, Auburn and numerous other schools that had made offers. ESPN.com did not even list Miami as one of the many schools he was considering.

He tweeted on his Twitter account, "Just committed to the University of Miami been my favorite school since I was little #blessed glad this over with."

The 5'10" 170-pound running back won the DII-AA Mr. Football award in 2012. He also plays guard for the Ensworth basketball team and is expected to play both sports in college.

Miami head coach Al Golden had said he was looking for an additional running back for the school's recruiting class after Plantation, FL, star Alex Collins signed with Arkansas.

Based on the lack of depth currently at the Hurricanes' running back position, Elder can expect to compete for playing time immediately.

Two of Middle Tennessee's most highly recruited football players this season have signed with Florida colleges. Brentwood Academy cornerback Jalen Ramsey signed with Florida State last Wednesday.
