Top UK football recruiting target Matt Elam tweeted Thursday night that he had a “terrific” visit with Coach Mark Stoops and the Wildcats staff.
Stoops had an in-home visit with the highly touted defensive tackle and was expected to be accompanied on the trip by offensive coordinator Neal Brown, defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot, tight ends coach Vince Marrow and defensive line coach Jimm Brumbaugh.
Elam hosted Alabama Coach Nick Saban on Monday and Notre Dame Coach Brian Kelly on Wednesday. He will announce his college decision Jan. 4.
Elam is one of the many players expected to make his official visit to Kentucky this weekend.
