QB Chad Kelly of Buffalo plans to visit Clemson, Alabama and maybe Florida State next month. “We’re going to sit down tomorrow and decide on those dates,” said Kelly who talked with Clemson recruiter Chad Morris Thursday night. “We talked about everything. We talked about academics, his offense and who has been drafted out of what kind of offense. I got seven letters from him today.” Kelly said he talks with Alabama a good bit and has also had recent conversations with Florida State. Clemson and Florida State have had time at the top with Kelly, and he said it’s hard to pick a leader right now. “I’m up and down every day,” he said. “I’ll have a number one after the visits.” But going into June, Kelly is a lean to the Tigers. “My visit there (earlier in the spring) speaks for itself,” he said. “It was amazing and I felt like I was a home and wanted.” Kelly plans to make his decision by the first part of July.
QB Greyson Lambert (6-5 200) of Jessup, GA has offers from Clemson, USC, NC State, Mississippi State, Alabama, Louisville, Miami, Boston College, Purdue and Virginia. “I had an offer from Georgia but they just told me they won’t be taking a quarterback in this class,” Lambert added. Lambert is very familiar with Clemson having visited five times. “I like the homey atmosphere there,” he said. “I like the coaching staff and think they’re going to get things done especially with the recruiting class they brought in last year.” He is less familiar with USC. “They just offered me a month ago,” Lambert said. “I’m going to camp there this summer since they’ve offered. I know of their recent history and how things are going there now.” Lambert has visited Clemson, Alabama, Georgia and Florida for football games and visited Florida State this spring. He plans to camp at Clemson and USC this summer. Last season, he threw for nearly 2000 yards and 20 touchdowns. He rushed for two more scores. Lambert does not have a favorite.
USC recruiter Jeep Hunter was by Titusville, FL Monday to check on DB Favian Upshaw (6-2 170). Upshaw actually plays quarterback and has offers from Illinois, Georgia Tech, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Middle Tennessee State and Appalachian State for that position. But USC sees him more as a safety. “Coach Hunter wants me to come and play defensive back for him,” Upshaw said. “But he didn’t mention an offer.” Upshaw said he’d like to play quarterback in college. Last season he passed for 1500 yards and 21 touchdowns and rushed for 1000 yards and 12 touchdowns. He plans to camp at USC, Clemson, North Carolina and Florida International. FIU and Appalachian State are his two favorites.
