"Kentucky has a really good coaching staff," said Porter. "I loved the school and the players (when I visited). There's a family atmosphere here," he continued.
Joker Phillips also spoke about Porter's addition.
"I'm excited about getting a player of this quality at this time of the year, especially a defensive lineman in August," said Phillips. "Elliott is a big, strong physical guy who plays hard and takes control of his position," he continued. "He's a great kid, really smart and has great character. I'm excited to have him join our football family," Phillips finished.
As a junior, Porter had 85 tackles, 20 for loss and 11 sacks. In an injury shortened senior year, he had 65 tackles, missing the first five games.
