Huskers host Texas S in camp

It's always a good thing for a school to see a player that they are interested in chose up in camp. It shows that the interest is mutual. The Nebraska camp was a success pulling in players from New Jersey to Alabama to Texas to California to North Dakota and of course from the areas around Nebraska. This safety made the trip from North Texas to camp at Nebraska.

The Huskers hosted a lot of players in camp, but LaRon Kelly is a special one. Kelly, a 5-foot-11 and 175-pound safety with 4.34-speed from Plano (Texas), felt like he shined in one on ones.

"Yep, I was at Nebraska for camp," Kelly said. "It went alright, it went good. I think that I did well in one on ones. I fell like I locked down everybody."

One on ones went Kelly's way, but he is pretty sure his testing numbers weren't what he usually runs. His legs were tired from a previous camp and seven on seven.

"No I don't, but I have a feeling that I didn't test very well. Before I went to that camp I went to the camp at Kansas and I also had seven on seven."

The trip to Nebraska was worth it for Kelly. Besides getting some instruction at camp he had a chance to look around and see some of the things that Nebraska has to offer.

"I liked it a lot. I wanted to see their weight room. I also wanted to get a feel for the people up there. I also wanted to see their stadium."

Quietly, Kelly has picked up offers from four schools. He did not have a chance to talk with Nebraska about him potentially getting an offer from the Huskers.

"I have offers from Kansas, Utah, Louisville and Oklahoma State I think just offered. I don't have an offer from Nebraska. We didn't talk a lot about offering."

Kelly has a free safety body and speed, but brings the physical side like a strong safety. Kelly likes to bring the wood to opposing offenses from his safety position.

"I play free safety. I love to hit. I hit back in pass coverage. I like to support the run. I just like to hit, hit them all. I had four interceptions, was second team all-state and all-district."

Kelly isn't eyeing anymore camps or trips this summer. Right now the idea is to win state in seven on seven and get ready for fall camp and his senior season.

"I am just going to work out and work real hard this summer. I don't have any other plans beyond that and just doing seven on seven."
