Matt Elam — one of UK football’s biggest recruiting targets — visited Ohio State on Thursday and tweeted a photo of him standing next to Buckeyes Coach Urban Meyer.
The class of 2014 defensive tackle from John Hardin High School is considered by Rivals.com to be the No. 2 prospect in the state behind Conner quarterback Drew Barker, who has already committed to Kentucky.
Elam — a 6-foot-6, 350-pounder — was elevated to five-star status earlier this week by 24/7 Sports, which ranks him as the No. 10 overall player in the class of 2014. He also has offers from Alabama and Notre Dame, among others. Elam attended Bama’s camp in Tuscaloosa earlier this spring and will take a visit to Notre Dame on Monday.
He plans to announce his college decision in January.
