QB Kelly ready for visits

Buffalo (N.Y.) St. Joseph's quarterback Chad Kelly has become a very visible prospect over the past couple of months and he now sits at nearly a dozen offers.

In total, 11 schools have offered the 6-foot-3, 205-pound dual-threat quarterback. Purdue was the school that most recently threw their hat into the ring.

With so many schools now pursuing Kelly and making it clear they would love for him to join their programs, he thinks it's time to hit the road.

"I just went to Syracuse last week for their scrimmage and I'm going to Clemson this coming weekend for their spring game," Kelly said on Saturday. "Then the next week is Florida State and hopefully I'll be attending Alabama's within the next 30 days, and Miami, too."

Other schools are on the verge of offering Kelly. Duke and Wisconsin have made it clear that they will probably offer when they come up to see him in the late April, and Kelly believes Miami will offer if he visits soon.

What's his plan for narrowing his list?

"I think probably right before school ends I'll have a top 10 and then midway through the summer I'll go to a top 5," he said.

In the past Kelly had said Alabama and Florida State were at the top of his list, but with new offers and new interest that could change.
