The Longhorns offered Kelly on Wednesday as first reported by HD's Jason Higdon.
A no-brainer offer, Kelly is the No. 1 outside linebacker in the country and No. 8 player in the country.
But Texas is a little late to the party and will have to play catch-up to make an impression on this five-star. He already has an official visit lined up with Oklahoma, and is carefully considering Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon, USC, Alabama, Cal, UCLA, Florida State, and LSU among others.
Kelly is one of those rare outside linebackers that can rush the passer, is strong against the run and drop back in to coverage. He has a great frame and as he continues to fill out and gains strength, he'll become an even more physical player. He's a high level athlete who roams around like a safety but projects as an ideal weakside 'backer at the next level. Very solid tackler and is beginning to play with more of an edge to him- Greg Biggins
