LB Kelsey updates his recruitment

5/10/2012

Gainesville (Fla.) linebacker Keith Kelsey has been entertaining a lot of visitors this spring and trying to put on a show with his efforts in practice.

"I'm feeling real good right now and I know some good things are about to happen," Kelsey said. "The pads are on and we're getting after it pretty good."

The 6-foot-1, 213-pound linebacker has offers from Louisville, South Florida, UCF, Marshall, Maryland and Iowa State thus far but plenty of schools have come through to evaluate him.

"Arkansas stopped by Wednesday and they like me a lot," Kelsey said. "I think Florida is coming out [Thursday] but I'm not sure."

Kelsey said two Big East programs are recruiting him the hardest.

"Louisville and South Florida are definitely coming at me pretty hard," Kelsey added. "Louisville is going to be here Friday and they are looking for a commitment."

It's doubtful Kelsey will commit this spring and he's currently working with his father on his summer plans.

"We haven't finalized our summer visits yet but we should pretty soon," Kelsey added.

Kelsey's father, Keith Kelsey Sr., was a standout linebacker for the Florida Gators in the 90s. He has been a major help in his son's recruitment.

"My dad knows what the deal is because he went through it on an even higher level," Keith Kelsey Jr. said. "So he is going to make sure that I'm looking at the right things and making the right decision for the long term."
