Treasure Valley QB Commits to Nevada
The offer came just recently as he attended the Nevada football camp in Reno. "They wanted to see me at camp," he said. "I flew down and threw the ball around a bit. They showed me around and they really liked me. They called me about a week later and offered me."
Kelly was recruited by (Assistant Coach/DTs Coach) Jim House. "Coach House recruited me," he said. "He was really interested in me. Always asking me questions. I like him a lot," Kelly added.
Nevada Head Coach Chris Ault was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame a few years back. That was a big selling point for Kelly. "Coach Ault is a good guy and full of energy," he said. "He knows what he's talking about and a Hall of Fame coach. I like him a lot."
The pistol offense at Nevada has put up big numbers in the WAC the past few years. Expectations are high for the 2009 Wolf Pack as QB Colin Kaepernick hopes to lead Nevada to one of their best seasons in recent history. "Colin is good," Kelly said. "I wish I could have met him on my visit. I look up to him. I'm going down there for their senior day soon. I hope I can meet him."
What will it be like going up against Boise State in college? "It'll be a good one. Jacob Johnston (6'1.5 185lb DB) is walking on at Boise State and I've known him my whole life. We've been ribbing each other a little bit."
The goal in 2009 for Kelly and his teammates is simple. "I just want to try to get our team back to the state championship and stay healthy," he said. "Just have a good year."
