Kelly was originally a Kentucky commit but coveted a Florida State offer throughout the process and finally got what he wanted at the 11th hour.
Kelly is a three-star prospect, ranked as the #37 offensive tackle prospect in the nation. He is a lean 285 pounds at 6'6. We believe he has a reasonably high ceiling thanks to his fluidity and athleticism at that size. He could comfortably carry 315 pounds after a couple years in the FSU conditioning and nutrition program.
Kelly's tape shows a nasty streak and a kid who sticks with blocks throughout the play, just the sort of player who should flourish under hard-driving offensive line coach Rick Trickett.
Kelly chose FSU over Florida and LSU.
