Already with notable offers from Michigan. Michigan State and Northwestern, Kelly-Powell says there is no early leader in his recruitment. However, he says he will be on Michigan's campus today when they play host to the top 2017 prospects from the Great Lakes State.

"I want to spend time with the coaches and see the campus more," he said, on his impending trip to Ann Arbor today.

He also pointed out he wanted hangout with some of the other players in attendance, for instance his Cass teammate Donovan Peoples-Jones and four-star LB Josh Ross.

"We all know each other, so it's just an opportunity to kick it and hangout and have fun," Kelly-Powell said.

"I have seen a lot [at Michigan] so far. I have seen a lot of the campus. I've seen the players. I have seen how they compete. I just want to sit down with the coaches and hear their mindset and everything."
