4-star 2016 defensive end Xavier Kelly from Wichita, Kansas has Clemson in his top group on Monday according to his twitter account.

His top eight schools in no particular order are Alabama, Florida State, Clemson, Michigan, Georgia, Kansas State, Oregon and TCU.

The talented defensive end prospect spoke with TigerNet last month and was very excited about the possibilities of studying management at Clemson. "It's great!," Kelly said. "They have great resources and are going to make sure you graduate."

He hopes to revisit Clemson during its annual recruiting cookout in July.

His offers include Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Baylor, Clemson, Colorado, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kansas State, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oregon, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Penn State, TCU, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and Wisconsin. Clemson offered on 3/25/15.

Kelly got several schools attention when he measured in at 6'5" and 230 pounds and ran a fast 4.55 at the Nike Dallas Regional "The Opening." He recently accepted an invite to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

He is also a standout basketball player who led East high to the 6A state title.
