Matthew Elam added yet another offer today. The John Hardin High (Ky.) product added his fourth offer and his third BCS scholarship.

With Western Kentucky and Kentucky offering Matthew Elam in recent weeks, it's not a surprise that the third FBS school in Kentucky went ahead and offered as well.

"I just got an offer from Louisville today," Elam said.

Elam recognized how big the offer is and was very pleased to say that the Cardinals have given him a scholarship offer.

"I know they are a great program with a great head coach, Charlie Strong," Elam said. "And they are coming off that big win over Florida."

Elam also likes a specific thing about Louisville and coach Strong.

"I know they focus on defense a lot. I know (coach Strong) is a defensive guy. They love defense, so it's really appealing because I'm a defensive player," said Elam.

With offers in hand from Kentucky, Alabama, Western Kentucky and now Louisville, could a decision be on the way?

"I don't know yet. I'm just trying to keep an open mind," Elam finished.
