QB Chad Kelly of Buffalo just wrapped up visits to Purdue, Michigan and Michigan State this past weekend. “I liked them all,” he said. “I’m just trying to get a feel for every college. I’m doing the pros and cons. I’ll hopefully find the best school.” Syracuse was by his school Tuesday and Clemson quarterbacks coach Chad Morris will be in on Wednesday. Maryland, Florida State, Duke and North Carolina also have been in to check on him. Tennessee and Michigan are also coming in. Kelly said he’s not yet cut his list. “Everybody is on the list,” he said. He did not indicate a favorite.
DB Chaz Elder (6-2 185) of College Park, GA says Clemson and Georgia are his top two right now though “I’m still open and want to see some more places.” Clemson and Georgia have been his only two visits. One school he wants to visit is USC. The Gamecocks offered him a couple of weeks ago. Elder said recruiters from Clemson, USC, South Florida, Indiana and Tennessee have been thru his school.

And he might visit USC at some point. Morris does not have a favorite. Last season he had 30 catches for 494 yards and 4 touchdowns.
