Elam is the 2nd best prospect in the 2014 class from the state of Kentucky and 28th best defensive tackle in the nation, according to 247 Sports. Earlier this week, he tweeted a picture of the 69 handwritten letters he received from UK. Why 69? Heads out of the gutters please…that’s Elam’s jersey number, and the staff included a note saying they’d save it for him at UK:
He currently has offers from Alabama, Kentucky, Louisville, and Western Kentucky, along with interest from Florida, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Ohio State and Vanderbilt.
Come be a hero, big guy.
