Well, it looks as though the recruiting saga of Matt Elam will finally come to a close this afternoon. Elam is expected to announce his college decision during a live video press conference today at Noon. Calling Elam’s recruitment anything less than a “headache” for both Kentucky and Alabama fans, would be an understatement.
Elam first announced that he would share his decision with the nation during the US Army All-American bowl, but quickly decided after arriving, that it was not the right venue to decide at that time. At first, many Kentucky fans (including myself) thought that could only be bad news for the Cats. As time progressed, Elam sent many tweets assuring both fan bases that he has not made his decision, and appeased all of those waiting and wondering by using hash tags such as #BBN and #RollTide.
Regardless of the decision Elam makes this afternoon, Mark Stoops and Bobby Petrino have been making huge strides to keep both programs relevant within the state. The can only mean great things about the future of the rivalry.
Watch the live stream below, and give your thoughts on where you think Elam will spend his college career.
