Matt Elam is a monster defensive tackle prospect from Kentucky who stands 6'6" and 350 pounds. He has impressive power, and he can be a load in the defensive trenches. With his strength, ability to anchor versus running plays and natural space-eating capabilities, Elam is wanted by many programs.
However, he has narrowed his list to six schools, according to Brian Eldgride of Scout.com. No timetable has been set for Elam's decision, but he will need to take his time and decide which program gives him the best chance to succeed academically and as a football player.
A dominant SEC program can picture Elam being its next great nose tackle, while another program believes he can help it compete with SEC teams in bowl games. A Big Ten program feels he would compliment its speedy defensive ends, and staying close home is also a great option for Elam.
