Last fall Kelly passed for 2,159 yards with 24 touchdowns against eight interceptions. He also rushed for more than 1,000 yards, so he's a dual-threat quarterback in the most true sense of the term.

Buffalo offered Kelly a little earlier in the process and on Wednesday morning the junior quarterback heard that he had received a verbal offer from Western Michigan.
