KSTV Goes One-on-One With UK Football Recruit Matt Elam

John Hardin defensive tackle Matt Elam has become a priority for the UK football staff as they try to lock down the top in-state talent. And with Alabama, Florida, Tennessee and Louisville also trying to land the services of the 6’6”, 335 pound junior, the Cats have a battle on their hands.

KSTV sat down with Elam to discuss UK’s interest, as well as what he’s hearing from other schools and who’s made an impact.
