UCLA will get Elder on their campus and he is looking forward to the visit.
"I talk to them every week and they have been recruiting me pretty hard, so I want to get out there.
"I like the coaches there, I like that the school is in Los Angeles, and I really like how the new coaches have changed the team around."
The Bruins are on Elder's list and they are on the only school to have an official visit set up at this time.
"I know I will visit Ohio State officially, but I do not have a date set yet. It will probably be in December though.
"I have not picked the other three schools I am going to take official visits to yet," he said.
