A receiver at Union City High School, Kelly was recruited as a linebacker, according to Greg Pickel. A 6-2 prospect, Kelly had previously committed to Syracuse before flipping Sunday afternoon. Kelly also weighed offers from Boston College, the University of Connecticut, and most notably, Rutgers. Kelly was in attendance Saturday evening, where he watched the Nittany Lions defeat the Scarlet Knights, 13-10.
Kelly clocks a 4.60 forty yard dash, according to his 24/7 page. He’s ranked as the eleventh best prospect in New Jersey.
The NCAA’s decision on Monday to roll back the sanctions does
not affect the 2015 class. This is Penn State’s 20th and final scholarship in that class. Non-sanctioned classes have 25 scholarships, including the class of 2015.
Kelly is the second linebacker from New Jersey in the 2015 class. You can check out more of Kelly’s highlights below:
