John Hardin junior Matthew Elam is one of the top prospects in Kentucky's 2014 class. The 6-foot-5, 330-pound lineman caught FOX Sports Next up with his recruitment.

Elam has been hearing quite a bit from a number of schools, but most recently three new schools have made their interest known.

"LSU, Cincinnati and Georgia have all been showing interest lately," said Elam.

Elam was generally just excited to be seeing interest from the new schools.

"All of the teams that have interest in me are great schools," said Elam. "I'm really glad and it inspires me to do better."

Another school that stepped in and showed interest previously is Alabama. They have invited him to Tuscaloosa next weekend.

"I actually just talked to Coach (Lance) Thompson at Alabama. I am going down there next weekend," Elam said.

Elam holds Alabama in very high esteem, as do most prospects.

"They are the one of the top, if not the top, football programs in the nation. It would be great if I could get a chance to go there," he said.
