Most have thought he was a UK lock but he sure seemed excited on twitter the other day about ND offering him a scholarship so they might be the biggest competition.
He is actually rated one of the best DT's in the country. It was just the TE coach from OSU that called. Here is a snippet on him :
Matt Elam is head of the class at the defensive tackle position in Kentucky, so it's only right to mention him first. 247sports.com has Elam as the #10 overall prospect. The now 370 pounder has a list of five schools still in consideration - Alabama, Kentucky, Louisville, Notre Dame, and Ohio State.
Notre Dame is the most recent program to offer John Hardin's anchor on the d-line. They also run the 3-4, which seems to be very important to the young man. With all the tradition and allure of Notre Dame Football it would be hard for anyone to pass up an opportunity of donning a golden helmet on Saturdays and being on national TV every time you step foot on the field.Kentucky is the hottest college football team in the nation on the recruiting trail right now, nabbing talented players one after another.
The 2014 recruiting class will surely be one of, if not, the best ever for the Wildcats and Elam could really put a stamp on it.
