Georgia WR Eyeing the Tigers

Georgia native Aaron Kelly had himself a breakout season in 2003, and he now appears to be a prime target of the Clemson coaching staff. The 6-foot-4 prospect recently set an official visit to Tiger Town in early January.

Aaron Kelly was voted Cobb County Player of the Year by the Cobb Touchdown Club last week, and his big season has opened up several doors to the next level. The smooth wide receiver has several big time offers, and he has set up several of his visits.

"I already went to Wake Forest on December 5th," said Kelly. "I am going to Clemson on January 9th. I will go to either NC State or Duke on January 16th. I'm only going to visit one of those schools; I haven't decided which yet. Clemson was by on Monday. Wake Forest came by the house tonight (Tuesday), and Duke will be here on Thursday. Wake Forest and Clemson are my two favorites right now."

Kelly is noted as a fluid receiver that has excellent hands and body control. At 6-4 and 165 pounds, he will need to add some weight, but that is the easy part of recruiting prospects.

The hard part is finding a 6-4 receiver that is as natural playing the position as he is. He finished the year with 50 catches for almost 1,000 yards receiving and 17 touchdowns.

Kelly is being recruited to Clemson by offensive line coach Ron West. We will continue to keep you updated on Aaron Kelly right up through signing day.

Editor's Note
Kelly is one of the top targets on the Tigers' board at wide receiver for the 2004 class. With Mike McIntosh and Phillip Morris headlining the current wish list, Kelly comes right behind those two and fits perfectly into the Kevin Youngblood type of role in the Clemson offense.
