The news of Elliott's planned visit came with little warning on Wednesday and came in sharp contrast to what Elliott was saying at the 2016 US Army All-American Bowl in early January, when he indicated that he was no longer communicating with the Texas coaching staff:

So much for that, it seems.
The 6'4, 306-pounder was a frequent visitor in Austin throughout the summer and fall, making it to campus four times between June and November. Since he's only taken one official visit this fall, he wouldn't have to pay for his trip to Texas.
Since Elliott looked like a potential Longhorns lean at times during the fall, there were two flip predictions made for Texas on Friday morning in the 247Sports Crystal Ball:
Any news that emerges from the visit won't come from Elliott, however, as he indicated that he'll go media silent in the coming days:

Considered a consensus four-star prospect, Elliott is the No. 115 prospect overall, the No. 13 defensive tackle, and the No. 18 player in the state of Texas, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
