Aaron Kelly Wide receiver Walton High School 6'5", 175 pounds. Maybe it's because his high school basketball season didn't go that well. Maybe it's because the weather is getting nicer. Whatever the reason, Aaron Kelly finds himself already counting down to June 28, when he will began taking summer school classes at Clemson. Kelly, who has already qualified academically, is one of many incoming freshmen who hopes to make an immediate impact for the Tigers this fall.

"I am pretty excited about everything," Kelly said. "The weather is warming up and with all the spring games that are taking place, it's got me really ready for the season." To keep himself in shape, Kelly has been running and lifting weights on a daily basis. "I think this is going to be a great season for us," Kelly said. "We lost some players, but we have a lot of returning players, and a great coaching staff."
