Visit to ASU Helped Change Safety's Perception

Terrance Kelly, the 5-11 210 safety from powerhouse Concord De La Salle High School, had all kinds of pre-conceived notions about the Sun Devils. He told DevilsDigest that following his Tempe visit; some of those perceptions did change in a positive way.

"I feel better about them," Kelly said about ASU. "I like them more now. The visit wasn't different than what I expected, I knew it was gonna be fun. I knew it was gonna be a beautiful campus. I enjoyed being with the coaches and players, and I liked the facilities too. My host player was Riccardo Stewart, and he was cool." Kelly does still list Oregon as his favorite, with UCLA and ASU rounding his top three.

The Devils are recruiting Kelly as a free safety. He stated that playing time could be the decisive factor in where he will attend school. "When I decide where to sign," he said, "it will depend on how deep are they in the position they want me to play in. All the schools have the same environment and good education. It's really about how many people they have coming back in my position."

Kelly visited with De La Salle teammate Willie Glasper. How did that affect his visit, and will it have an impact on his final decision? "It helped to have him on the visit," remarked Kelly. "It was cool going through the same stuff together. It might be a package deal with both of us. I really didn't talk to him much about that."

The safety is fully qualified, and claimed that he plans visiting no other schools. He added that his decision will come by the end of the week.
