Gators CB Kaiir Elam: ‘I want to be the greatest’

Elam is certainly in line to become the next-best in a long time of Gators cornerbacks who made their mark.

The 6-foot-2, 187-pound Elam ended the 2019 season on the SEC All-Freshman team, culminating with an interception near the goal line to preserve the Gators Orange Bowl win against Virginia.

It well could be the jumping off point to a decorated career that ultimately deserves mention with the likes of Joe Haden, Vernon Hargreaves III, Jalen Tabor, Quincy Wilson, CJ Henderson and teammate Marco Wilson.

Elam, the nephew of Gators All-American safety Matt Elam, is well familiar with the history of excellence at defensive back.
