SEC shows more interest in Todd Kelly Jr.

By Dave Hooker

Despite being one of the top programs in the nation, LSU still has some work to do to land one of the top junior prospects in the south.

Coaches from LSU visited Todd Kelly Jr. this week. However, the Watch List prospect from Knoxville (Tenn.) Webb said he's primarily focusing on his top ten finalists.

When asked if LSU could climb into that grouping, Kelly said, "I will give them a chance to."

Kelly said earlier this month that he is primarily considering Alabama, Clemson, Duke, Florida, Notre Dame, Ohio State, USC, Stanford, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

LSU, however, has an inside track for Kelly. The Tigers' defensive coordinator, John Chavis, was an assistant coach at Tennessee when Kelly Jr.'s father was a standout defensive end in the early 1990s.
