The fifth-year senior, hailing from Tabor City, N.C., switched from offensive guard back to defensive tackle following the season-opening loss to LSU due to depth issues along the defensive line. He had one tackle to his credit in three games played this season at tackle.
"Greg is a great kid and did everything we ever asked of him, whether that meant he played as a starter, a backup or whether he was on the offensive line or the defensive line," Davis said. "He did everything he could to make the team better."
Elleby spent his first three seasons in Chapel Hill on the defensive line, but moved to offensive guard following the 2008 season after a rash of injuries and attrition. He started four games at guard and played 284 snaps last fall.
