Matt Elam is a big guy. The 6’6″ 342 lbs. defensive tackle from Elizabethtown is considering the Cats, along with Louisville, Alabama, Western Kentucky and Eastern Kentucky, and also has interest from Florida. Charlie Strong visited Elam at John Hardin High this morning, and the visit got off to a bit of an awkward start…because Elam was wearing a UK sweatshirt. Elam found it so funny he tweeted about it afterwards:
Louisville Coach Came In Today And I Have On A UK Sweatshirt Haha

Elam didn’t stop there, tweeting a picture of himself and Patrick Anderson wearing matching UK sweatshirts with the caption “Repping That UK!! The Bond Between A Lineman And Their QB Is A Priceless #BBN.” He visited UK for the Spring Game last weekend, and from the looks of it, the Cats are in a pretty good position.
If the sweatshirt fits…
