Aaron Kelly, a 6-foot-4, 170-pound prospect out of Marrietta, Georgia, is less than 48 hours from making his commitment. "I'm getting close. I hope to have a decision by Sunday and call the coaches," Kelly told CUTigers.com during an interview on Friday.

Kelly will spend time over the weekend discussing the important decision that lies ahead with his parents.

"All of the coaches have finished coming over for the visits. I've taken all of my official visits. Now it's time to sit down with my parents this weekend and make a decision."

When asked if he had a leader heading into the weekend, Kelly responded, "I don't really know right now."

Clemson assistant coaches Dabo Swinney and David Blackwell met with the prize recruit on Wednesday to give the final push for the Tigers.

We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding receiver from Georgia, right up through signing day 2004.

Editor's Note
The Tigers are expected to sign three wide receivers in the 2004 class and Kelly would figure to be the last one on the board with the commitments of Mike McIntosh and La'Dontae Harris already in the bag. Keep in mind the Tigers' other verbal commitment at wide out should be a sign and place at Georgia Military. (Phillip Morris).

That leaves one more spot left, and Kelly figures to have that scholarship should he want it.

The Georgia native is a nice compliment to both McIntosh and Harris, who are both considered true "playmakers." Kelly, who is almost 6-foot-5, is more of a Kevin Youngblood type of player that can go up and get the jump ball with just about anybody.
