WR Kendall Kelly Profile
"The visit was really great," Kelly said. "We did some partying at the dorms and took the tour of the campus, and they just kept it fun the whole time. My mother came in with me, and she really liked the COX Academic Center. That was one thing that really drew her in. She walked away pretty impressed with the weekend."
As for Kelly, the visit could not have gone better.
"I would give it a 10 out of 10, and I am not lying about that," he said. "It just blew the other places away. All the other visits I have been on have been kind of boring, and this was just live the entire time. Terrance [Tolliver] was my host, and he kept me having fun from start to finish."
One event that the two wide receivers took in was Saturday's basketball showdown between the Bayou Bengals and Xavier.
"We went over to the game, and that was a lot of fun," Kelly said. "They had sold the arena out, and all the fans were going crazy the whole time. A bunch of students were showing me love while I was there, and I even saw Chris Paul. It was pretty crazy, and everyone stayed until the end, even though the team lost."
As for his visit with the Tiger staff, the 6-foot-3, 220-pound prospect said that wide receivers coach D.J. McCarthy assured he and his mother that LSU was a place that would fit his needs.
"Coach Mac and the other coaches were letting me know that if I come in and work, then I will play," Kelly said. "They have Brandon [Lafell] coming back for one year, then Terrance is really one of the only guys left who has a lot of time spent on the field.
"I am not really worrying about playing early and all that, but they showed me that if I worked hard enough then the opportunity is there."
With just one weekend left until signing day, and visits to LSU, Alabama and Clemson under his belt, the nation's No. 25 ranked wide receiver prospect said that the finish line is now in sight.
"I am back on the road now with my mom, and we are just taking things in," Kelly said. "I believe I might go to Tennessee or Auburn with this last weekend on a visit, because both of their new staff members have been on me pretty hard and want me in for a visit.
"With LSU, however, things are standing pretty good. I would say that the chances I end up a Tiger are very high, and definitely better than before."
