The North Carolina A&T basketball team made a huge addition after signing three-star recruit Tyrese Elliott.
Elliott is a highly-sought after player receiving offers from Ole Miss, Samford, UAB, Boise State and Alabama A&M before ultimately opting to play in Greensboro.
The three-star guard signed his letter of intent Thursday at The Athlete’s Foot shoe store in Atlanta.
The Loganville, Georgia native played for Grayson High School helping lead the Rams to a combined 42-13 record in his two seasons with the team.
Grayson advanced to the regional final of the Georgia state playoffs for the second time in three seasons.

Elliott is one of two big acquisitions the Aggies have made this offseason as they also received a commitment from former Division I and JUCO guard Kam Woods.
Woods’ college career began with Troy during the 2020-2021 season, averaging 10.3 points and 2.9 rebounds in 23 games.
He then transferred to Northwest Florida State Community College where he played last season helping lead the team to the NJCAA national championship.
In the championship game, Woods had a big performance scoring 17 points off the bench connecting on three three-pointers.
The JUCO champion comes to the Aggies with three years of eligibility remaining.
With the additions of Elliott and Woods to their backcourt, North Carolina A&T could be in for a breakout season in their second year in the Big South.
