Matt Elam is considered one of the top defensive linemen in the entire country and is even rated as a top 25 overall prospect by multiple scouting services.
Elam picked Kentucky today with his John Hardin High School teammates behind him, over Alabama.
When asked about going with UK over the Tide and if it hurts his chances of being seen by pro scouts or hurts his future in any way, Elam quickly calmed any worries about not being seen.
