Check out this video of Xavier Kelly discussing his recruiting tour of colleges and one of his primary reasons for committing to the Tigers (spoiler - Clemson fans).

"I love all of the Clemson fans. They're very supportive and they have a really big fan base, so I definitely love all of the fans," Kelly said to KAKE-TV news in a studio interview.

"I try to be as humble as possible," Kelly said. "I try not to get my head too big and I don't want to rub this in anyone's face because a lot of people work hard to get a D-1 offer. All I wanted was at least one D-1 offer."

His total list of 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 after he de-committed from Kansas State on 3/21/15.

Kelly got several schools attention when he measured in at 6'5" and 230 pounds and ran a SPARQ verified 4.55 40-yard dash at the Nike Dallas Regional "The Opening." Some other verified measurables from that day included a 4.47 shuttle, 30.9-inch vertical jump and a 36' power ball throw. He also 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.
