This is the second time in a week that Grimes has made the trip over to Havana, Fla., to meet with Kelly. The two are starting to build a strong relationship after Kelly spent a lot of time with Grimes during his official visit this past weekend.
Florida State assistants Rick Trickett and Odell Haggins met with Kelly on Monday. The Seminoles continue to recruit Kelly though they have limited room available in their class. There have been reports that FSU has offered him a greyshirt, and Kelly said he's still in a limbo of sorts in regards to whether he expects a spot to open for him.
The Tigers continue to take advantage of that opening by making Kelly their top priority along the offensive line. LSU does currently have the lead for his commitment after making a big splash with him this past weekend.
"It took 12 hours to get there because of the weather delays, but when I got there it was amazing. From the environment to the coaches and facilities, it was worth every bit of my time."
Kelly tentatively has a visit scheduled to Georgia this coming weekend, but he said Tuesday that he's unsure if he'll take it. According to Scout's Chad Simmons, the Bulldogs aren't a major player in Kelly's recruitment.
Most feel it will come down to LSU or Florida State with the Tigers holding a significant advantage unless a spot opens in the Seminoles' class. For more on Kelly's recruitment, check the TSD Message Board by clicking the link below.
Kenny Young wrapped up his official visit to LSU on Tuesday morning.
The four-star LB arrived Sunday night after official visits to Arkansas and Oklahoma State. Early reports on Young's visit are positive and he voiced his pleasure with the trip on Twitter.
Man I Had A Blast Weekend At LSU!! The People There Are Like No Other Foreal..— Kenny (@KennyYounggg) January 28, 2014
Next up for Young is an official visit to UCLA this weekend. Most feel the Bruins currently hold the lead for Young's commitment, though LSU has made a strong push in the last couple weeks.
With Young set to announce his commitment on National Signing Day, things are really starting to heat up with the four-star LB. Stay in touch with where things stand with him by clicking the link below.
LSU may have to wait until after NSD to find out if they'll keep soft commit Deondre Clark.
According to Scout's Bob Pryzbolo with SoonersIllustrated.com, Clark may wait until Feb. 10 to announce his final decision because he's participating in the International Bowl on Feb. 7. With him slated to be in Arlington, Texas, on NSD, Clark and his family want to wait until they return home to Oklahoma City to make his announcement.
But it isn't that simple as Clark's mother Dorshell continues to voice her preference that her son stays close to home. If Clark opts to listen to his mother, it would appear LSU will have a tough time holding on to him.
Up next for Clark is an official visit to Arizona State, though the Sun Devils are not considered a factor in his recruitment. The trip is simply a favor to ASU DL coach Jackie Shipp, who started recruiting Clark while he was on the Oklahoma coaching staff.

According to reports, Travonte Valentine will take an official visit to Miami this coming weekend.
Per the Sun-Hearld, Hurricane coach Al Golden met with Valentine in-person on Tuesday to make one last push for the nation's No. 2 DT. It does appear that Valentine will at least give Miami one final opportunity to get him back on board.
That will be an uphill battle though as LSU does have a significant advantage at this late stage in the cycle. Coming off his official visit this past weekend, the Tigers feel they have him all but locked up with a final decision expected on NSD.
Les Miles is expected for an in-home visit on Thursday, which will be a good opportunity to get in his ear before he heads to Miami. Though LSU does have all the confidence at this point, that Miami visit will be worth keeping an eye on.
