While visiting, Kelly had a chance to not only meet with head coach Ted Roof, but also his future position coach, Scottie Montgomery who is apparently thrilled with the prospect of a 6-foot-4 wideout with sub 4.5 speed in the forty.
"We were watching film of this past season, and he was talking about their lack of speed to beat the second line of defense. He thinks I can come in and give them that."
In addition to the positional coach meeting, Kelly and his fellow recruits had a chance to meet with various deans and academic support staff, which put some concerns behind him.
"They have a great system of helping you with school. All kinds of tutors and academic advisors that really make sure you get help if you need it - which is a great tool when you are making the transition from high school to college, especially with football."
Though the Eagles ended up with just 7-4 overall, Kelly acquitted himself well. Though he will lineup as a receiver for the Blue Devils, Austin played quarterback and punter for his South Cobb team. He finished with 500 yards on the ground, and an additional 550 yards through the air. He combined for 12 touchdowns, while averaging 40 yards per kick on 31 punts.
