Chad Kelly picks Clemson

Highly touted quarterback prospect Chad Kelly announced Thursday afternoon he would sign with Clemson.

Syracuse had offered Kelly a scholarship, but it was reported early Thursday the Orange were out of the running. Florida State and Alabama were also in the mix.

Kelly, the nephew of Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, is the No. 5 rated quarterback and No. 80 overall prospect on the ESPNU150 list. He had spent time at Dabo Sweeney's camp and also attended the Clemson spring game in April.
