John Hardin High School junior defensive tackle Matt Elam picked up his fifth scholarship offer on Wednesday afternoon, landing an offer from the University of Louisville.

The 6-foot-6, 340-pound Elam now holds offers from U of L, Kentucky, Eastern Kentucky, Western Kentucky and Alabama.

Elam is considered one of the elite prospects in the Bluegrass State for the Class of 2014.

He said he spoke with U of L defensive coordinator Vance Bedford and U of L head coach Charlie Strong and said he'll visit the Cardinals' for a spring practice.

"I'm really looking forward to going down there and seeing what they have to offer," Elam said.

Elam is also expected to visit Tennessee in a couple of weeks. His offer sheet is expected to grow in the coming weeks.
