A Lot To Like

West Virginia recently hosted a handful of prospects from Hillside HS (Durham, N.C.). One of those in attendance was a rising junior wide receiver who found a lot to like at the school

While most attention on the recruiting circuit is centered around the class of 2014. that hasn't stopped 2015 wide receiver Miles Kelly from making visits at various schools. He recently joined teammates Trevion Thompson and Donte Williams, both 2014 recruits, on a tour at WVU. It was a trip that was more than Kelly had imagined.

"It went great, better than I expected," Kelly said about his overall thoughts on the trip. "We had the opportunity to tour the whole facility and every aspect of the school. Everything was big. I really like it a lot."

Kelly, a 5-foot-11, 190 pound wideout, felt comfortable with how close in proximity everything is around campus.

"Everything is real close to each other," Kelly said. "It wouldn't be a long walking distance from one thing to another."

While on his visit, Kelly had the opportunity to build an early relationship with the WVU coaches.

"I spoke most with Coach (Lonnie) Galloway and (Dana) Holgorsen," he said. "They were really cool. They want to have a family bond with you. "They want to show you how to not just be a great football player but how to live a good life."

With interest growing daily in his recruitment, Kelly is sorting through schools he's wanting to learn more about.

"I'm interested in West Virginia, Miami, North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and Clemson." he said. "I don't have any offers yet, though. All the schools are telling me they are coming down during the spring and they want to see more of me."

While he couldn't narrow down a certain date just yet. Kelly made it clear he hopes to visit the Mountaineers again.

"Most definitely," Kelly said.
