Sharks tight end Braddie Ellison has picked up an offer from North Carolina A&T, coach Mark Lee said Monday.

Lee is out of town at the American Football Coaches Association convention in Orlando where he said things are beginning to "heat up" in terms interest for some other Sharks, though he did not name specific players.

Ellison had eight catches for 260 yards and three touchdowns. And though his statistics aren't flashy, Lee said Ellison has been noted for his solid run blocking skills. Ellison, 6-foot-2, 230 pounds, averaged 26 yards per catch.

"His run blocking is very good," Lee said. "He would dominate kids. They saw his intensity and how physical he was."

Ellison will take an official visit to North Carolina A&T this weekend, Lee said.
