had no idea what he was really getting into when he began to visit college football programs unofficially. That process for Kelly, a four-star quarterback from Buffalo (N.Y.) St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute, and his family didn't begin this past spring or summer. No, Kelly began to visit schools and attend college summer camps four years ago.

"As an eighth-grader, I saw Penn State, Ohio State and Georgia and loved all those schools," said Kelly, who is ranked No. 81 in the ESPNU 150 and the No. 5 quarterback in the country. "I wanted to go to all those schools. At the end of the day, I bet I have been to at least 15 schools, including 10 this past season. I visited Clemson twice before committing to the Tigers. It was a hard decision, but getting out helps. The more you see, the easier it becomes.

Kelly is a prime example of where the college football recruiting process has gone. Long gone are the days of mass official visits during December and January weekends. Recruiting has accelerated to the point where more visits and commitments in the summer months are becoming key.

- Kelly also gives more advice to future recruits also in the article -

"I would tell future recruits to visit as many schools as you can," Kelly said. "You never know what you are going to like. See what's out there. This is the next four or five years of your life. Get out there. The earlier the better, because the pressure of recruiting will hit you."
