Matt Elam is a man

Adam Lefkoe from WHAS 11 in Louisville recently caught up with a particular 6’6, 350 pound senior from John Hardin High School, who just so happens to be drawing a lot of attention from Kentucky and a few other major football powerhouses.

He is in Lexington this weekend and the coaching staff has a chance to make a big splash in his recruitment, possibly becoming the first five-star commitment for Coach Mark Stoops.

    When I saw ‘Matt Elam is a’ as the title I thought he had commuted early to UK and was about to jump for joy. But I was wrong sadly.

    I really have to believe Stoops is in the driver’s seat in this kid’s recruitment. Drew Barker and the rest of those guys and he seems like he is totally embracing #BBN. How cool is this recruiting class?!

    This guy has always professed love to the Tide. Even the day ol’ Charlie walked in with Matt in his UK shirt.

    Love KSR, but I hate that they use the 24/7 rankings. Rivals is way better.

    Supposedly, Michael Dyer is going to transfer to louisville. He was a five star and the number 1 RB in his class. He was booted from auburn as was the MVP of Auburn’s title game. He can play right away. Between him and Domonic Brown, they may not pass against us.

    Matt Elam’s belly button probably looks like the Sarlacc Pit from Star Wars.

    What are the odds of us getting him? Also, number 6 must be a Bama Fan!!!! Who else would be that %$#^%$#.

    11 – No one cares. And he was kicked off of multiple teams for drug issues, gun possession issues, being involved with theft from his own team-mates. And if he goes to a school in the ghetto like U of L, then most of the running he will do will be off the field. From the police. Assuming he’s still in decent condition and not a has-been like Maurice Clarett.

    Matt Elam’s belly button hasn’t been kicked off of any teams, as far as I know. Michael Dyer has been kicked off of two.

    Can you imagine what this kid could become with Erik Korem’s sports science conditioning program? That 4.9 40 could become who knows what and that 350 lbs would turn into hard hitting muscle. I hope we get him and get to watch his transformation into lean mean hitting machine. I know he has offers from all the top programs but where else are they on the cutting edge of training like UK is now.

    17, not sure about Matt Jones, as to the person who’s using MJ’s name? Let put it this way, if you had as many PP’s sticking out of you as you’ve have had stuck “IN” you, you’d walk around looking like a Porcupine!

    Just saw that man child, Matt Elam, at the mall…dudes a beast. I can’t imagine seeing him in full pads! We need his presence! Also, saw the other recruits that were with him (barker, berrios-didn’t realize how short he is but he is stalky, snodgrass, etc). They looked like they getting along really well! Lets do this! #BBN

  22. Matt Elam is not a 5 star trecruit

    Matt Elam is not a 5 star recruit. This site says it over and over again, but ESPN and Rivals, the two biggest recruiting services, don’t think hes a 5 star player. You cant call him a 5 star recruit because 24/7 has him there and that’s where hes highest but then say this class is #3 because rivals says so. That just looks like really biased unprofessional journalism
