    40 lbs overweight, is that what I just read?
    If you are a superstar, you come into Spring ball at the top of your game.
    No one should be telling him this. He was out of shape in the Army bowl.
    Will be interesting if he will do it, now that the drama is over.
    Should have had his behind in the gym everyday.

      I fear you don’t understand college football. He won’t be in this Spring Game. He would’ve had to been enrolled in the spring semester at UK, which is already a few weeks underway. He will not be allowed to practice with the team until August.

    He’s still in HS. Won’t be at UK for spring ball so he has plenty of time to get a workout regiment from the coaches and begin training.

    This was a huge get for UK but I hate how some (outside UK) are trying to twist this and say that UK can’t prepare him for the next level like Alabama. Did they forget that a defense that was built largely by Stoops just won the BCS championship game? Stoops is a very competent defensive mind. For Elam’s NFL future it doesn’t matter if UK’s win count won’t compare to Alabama’s over the next few years. Elam will still shine here and will be developed very well. He may get instant playing time and there is no denying that actually getting game experience is huge for development.

    Practice and sitting on the sidelines or as a second, third string for awhile will only get you so far. He may get 3-4 years of real game experience here under a great defensive coach. No way this hurts his NFL future. Elam will be of great help to UK and will be just fine himself when he leaves UK.

      Except that the statistics show FSUs defense got much better when Stoops left.

    Hes still a fat tub of lard. What kind of prima dona wears his Adidas All American jacket to his school announcement? Wear your current school gear and show appreciation. This chubby turd will be a bust. He pays way too much attention to his ranking and his star power. Which Is why he went to UK. At Bama they can move on to the next guy If hes a bust. But, at lowly UK they are forced to stick with just him until he Is gone.

      You played ball where sir ? Since your so adept at evaluating talent. He earned his All-American ranking and can wear whatever he pleases. He doesn’t owe his high school anything other than working hard towards graduation.

    Heck they need to go after #55 behind him. Dude has some guns on him. Elam will be just fine when he gets into a college weight training program. They will get that baby fat off of him as long as he has a decent work ethic.
