The 18-year-old has arrived at Layer Road from Dulwich Hamlet.
The African-born defender only made his debut for Dulwich last year, after arriving in the country with his family from Cameroon in 2001.
He has quickly adapted to English football and Colchester have snapped him up after he impressed manager Phil Parkinson during a trial at the end of last season.
Elokobi is Colchester's fourth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Liam Chilvers, Kevin Watson and Stephen Hunt.
