Kelly Jr. says he will visit USC

December 24, 2013 

OL Derrick Kelly Jr. of Havana, FL is getting a strong push from USC and plans to take an official visit to Columbia. Kelly has four remaining visits after his official trip to Florida recently.

Though he has not set the date for the USC visit, it could be January 17th. Kelly has scheduled his LSU trip for January 25th.

"I am looking for a school with a good program and strong academics," Kelly said. "I am very interested in South Carolina and the legendary coach, Steve Spurrier."

Originally, Kelly had committed to Kentucky but did not mention the Wildcats as a possible destination. Other schools showing strong interest are Florida, Florida State and South Florida.

"I plan on taking all of my official visits," he said. "I don't know where I'll go for the other two." Kelly does not have any favorites and did not indicate a decision date.
