LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- In this KyScout Video feature, we put the spotlight on five-star Elizabethtown (Ky.) John Hardin defensive tackle Matt Elam, one of UK's top recruiting priorities in the Class of 2014, as he opens his senior season against Louisville Seneca.

The 6-foot-5, 360-pound Elam had six tackles, three tackles for loss, four quarterback hurries, one sack and one pass deflection that led to an interception in a season-opening 35-6 win over Seneca.

Afterward, he told KyScout that his current list of prospective schools includes Kentucky, Alabama, Notre Dame, Louisville, Ohio State and Tennessee. Elam has an unofficial visit to UK coming up when the Wildcats play host to Louisville at Commonwealth Stadium on Sept. 14.
