Matt Elam reacts to Alabama defensive line coach going to Texas

(h/t Brian Prater)


Ever since Matt Elam decided to postpone his college decision last weekend, Kentucky fans have been searching for any kind of positive vibe or tea leave reading to suggest that the decision wasn’t all bad for Kentucky. Drew Barker admitted that he wasn’t sure what Elam was going to do now, and many believed that the tide was beginning to turn back in favor of Alabama. Elam still has an upcoming official visit to Alabama, but a coaching staff change at Alabama could throw another factor into play. Elam, a defensive lineman, will no longer be coached by the same guy at Alabama if he does decide to go to Tuscaloosa. According to a report, Alabama’s defensive line coach Chris Rumph will be joining Charlie Strong at Texas. Perhaps Kentucky can capitalize on this change in the recruiting process.

Stay tuned…

    Elam will follow Strong to Texas along with the Line Coach. Really easy to see this!!!

      I agree. Kind of the perfect storm for Texas.

    Who the h**l really gives a damn! Doesn’t change any of our lives the least little bit! You people act like UK sports is a life or death situation. If we win, we win. If we lose, we lose. Spend some time with your families. Stop spending so much time and energy worrying about a bunch of teenagers that really couldn’t care less that you even exist.

      And how does your appearance on this site fit into your “family matters- scheme of life” rant?

    He won’t go to Bama now. We have a great D line coach right here at UK!!!!…Stoops. He has proven himself at Arizona and FSU. You don’t need anymore than that.

      Except he’s not the DL coach.

      I know that. I was trying to say that basically his M.O. is defense. It starts with the D line and he has been very successful at both of those schools…I thought you would figure that out

  4. Elam to Texas!!!

    Call me a pessimist, but that’s basically how I read his tweet.

    If he’s so impressed with the D-line Alabama coach going to Texas, we weren’t getting him anyway.

    So over Elam. Please KSR, move on. Elam starting to make UK fans look pathetic. Punked.

    2, take a chill pill. We’re not all THAT obsesses with recruiting.

    I pretty much new that Texas was in the mix Saturday. Something major happened Friday or Friday night. When his announcement was almost the same as the news of Strong to Texas being almost exactly at the same time was interesting. Strong knew the middle of last week he was leaving and had already contacted future staff. If the truth is known then the D-line coach contacted his recruites of the move. Like all these kids they are close to their position coaches during the recruiting process. Almost guarantee he will visit Texas. If so, who cares. Sure we would like to have him, but he will not make or break this class. He might have the skill set, but from what I saw Saturday, he doesn’t have the motor or lateral pursuit.

    He had a tweet after Charlie left that said he asked Charlie if he’d be at ul for 3-4 years and Charlie said yes, and said something to the way of guess he lied. So I’d say Texas isn’t a option

    Yeah…Elam had his chance to really excite the fans the other day but then he whiffed. Why? I neither know nor care. It’s not germaine. Now, if he signs with UK I’ll be happy, but he ain’t gonna get the ticker tape he was expecting. And if he signs with someone else, I hope he looses every game he plays in. If he ain’t playing for us, why would I even care.

    Fun fact: Coach Rumph is Donte Rumph’s uncle.

    I don’t see him going to Texas, I still believe UK is his leader.

    Got big buffets in Texas, that will be a factor for this fat kid. Get into shape instead of tweeting.

    RUMPH leaving, sets it up for Ed Orgeron to be next DLine coach at BAMA.

    KIFFIN and Coach “O”……………………………….BAMA just got much more stronger in recruiting, like they need to.

    Elam will sign with BAMA.

    It is too late in the process. I highly doubt he drops Bama or adds another school. I know he has an official visit to bama coming up. Unless he changes that to texas, i would still say hes just down to us and bama. It could happen, but with 3 weeks until signing day, i think its still a 2 horse race
