"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.
