USC and Clemson offered offensive lineman Nolan Kelleher of Wando last month.
I am so excited to get offers from both schools, Kelleher said. They are great schools. At first, I was a little disappointed that they were giving me the attention some other schools were, but I realized that I showed up at their camps (last summer) a little overweight. I have really changed my body type, and I think they saw that in recruiting tape and started looking at me again.
Kelleher is narrowing his focus to USC, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Mississippi State, Tennessee and N.C. State.
Kelleher was at Clemson on Friday for a cookout, and he visited USC earlier in the week. This weekend, he heads to camps at Florida and FSU, and he plans to visit Stanford after that for another camp.
I want to study mechanical engineering, and it doesnt hurt that Stanford has the No. 1 school in that field, he said. Hopefully, the camp will open up an opportunity.
