John Hardin's Elam has "great" U of L visit

Matt Elam

John Hardin standout Matt Elam picked up an offer from the University of Louisville earlier this week and on Saturday made an unofficial visit to the campus.

The 6-foot-6, 340-pound Elam met with Charlie Strong, took a tour of the facilities and then was at the basketball game against Notre Dame.

"It was a great visit," Elam said.

Elam said the Cardinals had been in contact with his coaches but since the offer he's trying to build a better relationship with the coaches.

"They told me I am welcome any time, so I decided to come up," he said. "I really like Louisville and really likes the visit."

Elam said he was impressed with Strong.

"I love coach Strong," Elam said. "He's such a great person and a great coach. He's so down-to-earth and seems genuine. He's a great guy."

Elam said he is trying to "keep an open mind," and now has four offers – U of L, Kentucky, Western Kentucky and Alabama.

"Right now, I just don't know," he said.
