UF, Nebraska offer 2014 S Todd Kelly Jr.

8/5/2012

Todd Kelly Jr. has picked up two more scholarship offers from tradition-rich programs.

Florida and Nebraska are the latest to join the list of schools pursuing the safety prospect from Knoxville (Tenn.) Webb.

"First Big 12 offer that I have, so that's pretty cool," Kelly Jr. stated via text message to ESPN when asked about the Cornhuskers. "Every offer is awesome, so I feel honored."

Kelly Jr.'s father, Todd Kelly, was a standout defensive end for Tennessee in the early 1990s. However, his son has said that legacy won't affect his recruitment, which makes Florida seem like a realistic option.

"Great tradition and a good fan base," Kelly Jr. said when asked what he liked about the Gators.

Kelly, just a sophomore, already has an impressive scholarship offer list, with invites from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Tennessee and USC.
