Position: Linebacker

Thoughts: Leroy is a bit of a mystery to me. Leroy had some solid offers coming out of High School in 2011 but never signed with anyone. I don't personally know the reason why and don't care to speculate either. If somebody else knows, feel free to fill me in. With that said, Leroy will walk-on at Louisville this season and be welcomed like family (literally). Leroy's brother Donel Elam is also on the squad (Day 26) and Kelson played at William T. Dwyer High School with fellow Cards Gerald Christian (Day 18) and Robert Clark (Day 4). Leroy is brought in at linebacker but his size makes me thinks he may not be pulling many reps at that position this season. Although another small fella did have a pretty impressive spring at linebacker (TEASER ALERT), check back tomorrow on that. Leroy seems to have the talent and speed to play outside, but I wouldn't be shocked to see him maybe suit up for punt coverage or kickoff coverage to get some experience. I'll be interested to see how Leroy fits into the program over the next few years.

Sweet Tweet:

Just as Mike referenced Nelly (s/o to St. Louis) in the Wednesday News and Notes ® I'll take this as an opportunity to agree with Mr. Kelson. We don't need a debate, or an argument about this. It's factual. Whether you just occasionally enjoy the sounds of a Hip-Hop artist on the radio or you have every U.G.K. album every cut, Jay-Z or as I call him, Shawn (we're pretty close) is in fact in a league of his own. He has eleven #1 albums. Thats more than Elvis. A LOT of people buy his music. A lot. Don't like "rap" music? That's fine, but you still have to respect the artist. Feel free to disagree, but in this case you would be Munchie.
