Height: 6-2

Weight: 180

Position: cornerback

Rivals Ranking: 4-star

Recruited by:  Todd Grantham/Torrian Gray

Enrollment date: Summer of 2019

Notable: Elam is the nephew of former Florida great Matt Elam and even joined the younger Elam on his official visit to Gainesville. Elam liked Georgia a lot but the hiring of Torrian Gray really put Florida on top and also the loss of Mel Tucker at Georgia hurt the Bulldogs.

Quotable: “Coach Mullen just says that he wants me real bad and he needs me,” Elam said on Mullen’s message to him. “Every game that they play he’s like I need you to come play for me right now. His goal is to win a national championship.”
