Elliss recorded 16 tackles for loss and 12 sacks this season. Although he considered returning to Utah for another season, he ultimately decided to forego the remainder of his eligibility.
Elliss was a huge part of Utah’s defense over the past couple of seasons. He initially joined the Utes as a 3-star recruit out of Idaho in the class of 2021. He spent 3 years with the program before deciding to turn pro.
