Kelly Returns to East Lansing

Oak Park (Mich.) class of 2015 running back John Kelly has a Michigan State offer and visited again on Saturday. Was there any pressure on him to commit?

Oak Park's speedy junior running back John Kelly has been to Michigan State several times this year, and has built up a familiarity with the Spartans.

On Saturday, he visited again, seeing the Green and White defeat Big Ten opponent Purdue. While there was not much that was new for him, he says it was a good visit as usual.

"It was pretty much all the same things. They all treated me like family the whole time. The team looked real good. They looked all in-tuned."

Kelly has a Spartan offer and the more he is in East Lansing, the more those close to him talk commitment with him.

"The person in my ear the most is Jayru [Campbell] and Coach [Curtis] Blackwell. They all want me to be an early commit, but at this point, it's still my time frame."

As for upcoming visits, Kelly says, "I should be heading back to up to Michigan State for their game against Michigan."

Kelly, who also has a Western Michigan offer, says he ha recently heard from Nebraska, Missouri, and Maryland.
