The long courtship with Elizabethtown, KY defensive tackle Matt Elam is finally coming to an end as he will make his choice at 11am CT / 12 noon ET today.

For several months he was torn between the local school, Kentucky, and perennial powerhouse Alabama. It is well-known that Elam would like to stay close to his family but Elam's mom has told reporters that she is willing to relocate if her son chooses Alabama.

Bama Coaches Kirby Smart, Lance Thompson, and Bo Davis were all scheduled to be visiting Elam today at John Hardin High School.

At the Army All-American Game, the 4-star was measured at 6-4 7/8 and 372 lbs with a 6-8 1/2 wing span. This big man specialized in stuffing the run.


Alabama currently has 25 commitments with D.J. Pettway not counting against this class. Eight of the commitments are already enrolled at the Capstone.

As reported Wednesday, defensive tackle commit O.J. Smith is set to visit Mississippi State this weekend which raises speculation that he may flip to the Cowbell Nation.

Reports are surfacing today is that safety commit Chris Williams might be planning on visiting Central Florida this weekend.

Stay tuned...
