After Matt Elam postponed his announcement this past weekend, folks worried that the five-star defensive tackle was giving Alabama a closer look. Now, it appears he’s going to do that in person. The Cats Pause’s Josh Edwards is reporting that Elam will take an official visit to Alabama on January 17.
Drew Barker called into the radio show this morning to give fans an update on the Army All-American game, the 2014 class, and what exactly went down with Matt Elam last weekend. Barker, who has moved into his dorm in Lexington and will begin class soon, said that he was very surprised that Elam postponed his decision until Signing Day, and that he found out the news with everyone else.
Where do the Cats stand with Elam? Barker said that he was very confident heading into the Army All-American game, but now, he says he isn’t sure what Elam will do, admitting “it could go either way.” Right now, Elam’s Crystal Ball predictions sit at 61% UK and 39% Alabama.
We’ll have Barker’s full interview up on the site later today.
