Elliott, a former Baylor, Houston and now Wolverine commit, is a four-star prospect and the 14th-ranked defensive tackle in the class, per the 247 Composite ranking.
He committed to Michigan in October while visiting for the Michigan State game and had been steadfast in his commitment for months. When rumors of a potential flip to Texas came up a few weeks ago, he told Maize n Brew that he only spoke to the Wolverines and he fully intended to sign with them.
Days later, news broke of an official visit to Texas the following weekend and his status was up in the air from there. The Longhorns are in the driver's seat to be the fourth team he has committed to in this cycle.
Elliott's decommitment drops the Wolverines back down to 25 commitments in the 2016 class with one week to go until National Signing Day.
