Kentucky Wildcats Football: Matt Elam explains his Saturday non decision

 

 

Kentucky Wildcats football fans can take a sigh of relief. Sort of.

Most people figured that  Matt Elam’s reluctance to make a commitment was due to the fact that Alabama was making a big push for his services.  That probably was not the main reason that Elam did not commit as he explained in his tweets.

Granted, I am not privy to the arrangements at the Alamo Dome or what Elam had been told prior, we have to accept him at his word concerning the circumstances.  Keep in mind this is the biggest decision a high school kid will make, so personally, I am OK with the delay.  Elam did not have to issue a statement and the fact he did shows that he is pretty cognizant how his decision may affect his home state.

It’s less than a month till National Signing Day and I for one, would rather have a 100% committed Elam make his announcement rather than one that is wavering or not certain.  Just the fact that we are in the battle with Alabama speaks volumes how much Mark Stoops has changed the culture and I’m fine with waiting and wish Matt the best of luck on his decision.
