Three-star defensive tackle recruit Matt Elam has been one of the most sought-after recruits in the country this year, sporting scholarship offers from Alabama, Ohio State, Notre Dame, and Tennessee, among others. He recently narrowed his future school choices down to two SEC programs — Alabama and Kentucky — and both programs are making a big push to land the Elizabethtown, Kentucky native.
Today, Elam met with Nick Saban, and the Alabama coach even took him for a spin in his Mercedes. Saban was wearing his Sunday best and everything:

I’m sure Saban was just thrilled when this photo was snapped. In all seriousness though, it has to be pretty cool to meet with Saban one-on-one, and I’m sure Nick had quite a pitch for Elam. We’re just a few weeks from National Signing Day, so we’ll likely have a decision from Elam very soon.
