Freshman defensive tackle Matt Elam probably won’t single-handedly reverse Kentucky’s fortune in the SEC East. But he will be easy to spot.
The 6-foot-7, 375-pound DT is already turning heads in Lexington, earning public exposure for the first time at fall camp.
A 4-star recruit out of Elizabethtown, KY, Elam is already drawing several comparisons on Twitter. Most of them are to Billy Bob from the movie Varsity Blues and former Wildcat hefty lefty Jared Lorenzen.

@ChrisFisher247 Is that Lorenzen?

And at just 6-foot-4, 315 pounds, Lorenzen really has nothing on Elam.
