Elam will not be making his announcement Saturday.
Elizabethtown (Ky.) John Hardin 5-star defensive tackle Matt Elam, who was slated to announce his college decision at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio Saturday, has decided to postpone his announcement until National Signing Day.
Elam first reported the news via Twitter:
@FballIsLife69 Letting Everyone Know Right Now I Matt Elam.. Will Be Deciding My College Decision On Signing Day Sorry For The Inconvenience #Bama #BBN
An NBC spokesperson later confirmed the news to 247Sports.
Elam, who was down to Kentucky and Alabama, told Kentucky Sports Radio he needs more time.
"I just didn’t feel comfortable doing it and I chose this because I thought it would be enough time, but it’s not. And like I could commit and be not 100% but thats not how I am. I want to be all into and right now I am not. So I talked it over with my mom and coach and they think thats best. So that is what I’m going to do. I hope everyone understands."
