says Morris talked to almost everybody else at his high school.

Kelly (St. Joseph’s) told TigerNet that Morris was at the school early.

“He was there around 7:15 a.m., and I bumped into him after I worked out,” Kelly said. “It worked out really well. The players aren’t actually able to talk to the coaches, but he talked to my Athletic Director, counselors, teachers, coaches and everybody else. I am sure he got a warm feeling from everybody. It was his first time to Buffalo and I am sure he felt good about the visit.”

Kelly is fresh off visits to Purdue and Michigan St. this past weekend, and he said he came away impressed with both schools.

“They were good visits,” he said. “We talked a lot about academics, and it was good to be able to see some different schools.”


Kelly said that Clemson still remains high on his list of suitors.

“There are ones I like and there are ones that are alright,” he said. “I want to get a feel for every team. I wish there was only one offer so I would have to go there, but I have been blessed with 12 so I am going to check them all out. There aren’t any leaders right now, despite what other reports are saying. But Clemson is up there. I had a wonderful trip with my family, and it was great to be there.”

He said he plans to take a few weeks off from his rigorous travel schedule.

“This weekend I have the SAT, so I really can't go anywhere,” he said. “Next week, I am going to take the week off. I haven’t spent a lot of time at home lately, and I need to study and finish up some school projects. Then the week after that, I am going to the Elite 11. After that, I will visit somewhere in the Midwest again. I am going to take as many visits as I can.”

Kelly completed 137-of-249 passes for 2,159 yards with 24 touchdowns and eight interceptions last season, and added 86 rushes for 1,057 yards and 15 scores.
