One thing you could say for sure….Kelly Nead has been around the block. Kelly started his playing career back in 1997 with Ricks, then took 2 years off to complete a church mission, then returned in 2000 to complete his JC career as a TE (his brother was also on that Ricks team and plays for BYU). Kelly was recruited by Temple University (where he excelled during spring and summer drills and was projected to be a starter at tight end), but returned to Idaho before the season began due to family obligations. To help fortify the defensive front (and utilize his agility), Kelly is projected as a defensive end for the 2002 Vandal campaign.
