Did Kelvin commit to Texas A&M?

"Yes sir, I have," Kelvin said.

Does he still plan to take his official visit to Penn State this weekend?

"I doubt it," he said with a hint of uncertainty in his voice.  "I don't think so."

What made him commit to Texas A&M today?

"I didn't want to wait too long.  Maryland was the third school that I visited.  So far, A&M had the best to offer, so I just decided to go ahead and lock it down.  They were very pleased.

"I mainly wanted to get it out of the way."

He left a message for Coach Norwood to let him know of his decision.

Was distance to a prospective school a concern?

"Oh no, distance was not a problem at all."
