Heavily recruited defensive end Xavier Kelly of Wichita, Kan., made a sweep through some Southeastern schools, capping the tour at Clemson on Sunday.
Before that Kelly visited Georgia, Alabama and Florida State. He left Clemson to return to his father’s residence in Savannah. This Saturday he will attend a combine in Baltimore.
Kelly got the full treatment from the Clemson staff, spending time with Dabo Swinney and Brent Venables and touring the campus and facilities.
“It was great,” he said. “I got the opportunity to meet the coaches and learn about the whole program. I loved it. It’s a great environment. The coaches are straight up with you. Coach Swinney talked about life after football. He was telling Clemson is not all about football but about family and developing as a person.”
After these four visits, Kelly said it’s impossible to rank them in any order because something stands out about each. He plans to piece together a top 5-8 list by the end of July or early August.
Kelly said later in the summer he will take visits to Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Michigan State, Michigan, Notre Dame, TCU, Texas A&M, Baylor and LSU.
The four-star prospect has around 30 offers.
