B.J. Kelley (6-2, 170) spent Monday morning and evening working out with some Pac-10 defensive backs, including one who may be a future teammate.
With Central assistant coach Tony Perry watching, Kelley locked up against some of Perry’s former Fresno (Calif.) Edison defensive backs Robert Golden, Cliff Harris, and Courtney Viney. All three currently play in the Pac-10.
It was a baptizing experience for Kelley to line up against seasoned college defensive backs, especially ones who played under Perry. But Kelley held his own, particularly when he was able to turn on the jets and outrun defenders on go routes.
It’s that speed that has garnered him offers from over 10 universities across the country, including four from the Pac-10 conference. Earlier this month, Kelley added his fifth Pac-10 offer.
“Oregon offered me,” he told Scout.com Monday morning. “They offered a few weeks ago. [WR] Coach [Scott] Frost offered me.”
The Ducks and California are his top two schools with Northwestern and Fresno State rounding out his top four. However, Cal is the only school that hasn’t offered him, and the Bears have shown no sign of doing so anytime soon.
“Oregon wants to come for a visit to see the school before I commit,” said Kelley.
He says he will visit Cal Poly with his head Coach Casey Quinn before fall training camp begins. Kelley will also visit Oregon and Northwestern officially, but he hasn’t set any dates.
