Prospect Updates - Julian Riley, Brandon Kelly

We have a couple of updates for you today... one on defensive lineman Julian Riley from St. Petersburg, FL, and another on Bedford standout Brandon Kelly.

Julian Riley, a fine defensive line prospect from St. Petersburg, FL, is currently in the process of taking his visits. He's saving a spot for one school he hopes to hear from though.

"I would love to hear from Ohio State," he said. "They were my #1 school. I have not heard from them for awhile though. I have decided on 4 visits. I am keeping one open just in case they call me."

"I visited Purdue and it it went great. I am still taking all my visits though. I am set up for Wisconsin, Pitt and Boston College. I will take an unofficial to Florida. It is only 2 hours away. They offered me last Tuesday officially."

Julian also discussed his season and what positions he was playing. "I play DE but also some linebacker and some DT because schools were running away from me, so coach moved me around a bit," he said. "I had 14 sacks during the year and 3 more in the playoffs. I had 18 QB pressures and 28 tackles for loss. We went 8-2 and made it to the 2nd round of the playoffs."

We also got an update on a fine Ohio prospect who you may not know much about, ATH Brandon Kelly from Bedford.  It sounds like Brandon will not wind up at Ohio State, but he has plenty of options. 

"I have visited Boston College, Duke and Stanford," he said. "Everywhere I went, there was something I liked, but Stanford was something special."

"Stanford is looking at me for several different positions but I talked most to the defensive ends coach. They thorw alot out there so I would have a chance to make a lot of plays."

"Wisconsin will be my last visit. I will cancel Minnesota. It is going to take something to beat Stanford."
