4-star DB hopes to build on Clemson relationship

Prior to receiving an offer from Clemson in mid-June, four-star 2019 cornerback Cam’Ron Kelly visited Clemson for the first time last month.

“The overall feeling was great, and they welcomed me with open arms,” Kelly said of Clemson’s staff. “It was unbelievable.”

After an enjoyable initial experience at Clemson, Kelly is looking to get back on campus and continue building upon his relationship with the Tigers.

“I’m looking forward to just being around the coaches, building an even better relationship and getting around the players,” Kelly said. “Especially some of the guys that came from Virginia that I talk to like Jordan Williams and K’Von Wallace.”

Kelly (6-1, 190) is working to arrange visits for this summer and hopes to make it back to Clemson.

“I’m trying to get the schedule set up here in a few days for visits,” he said.

Kelly boasts an impressive offer sheet, with Clemson, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Penn State, Stanford, Tennessee and Virginia Tech among those on his list.

He isn’t naming any favorites at this time as many of his suitors are showing strong early interest.

“Everybody is pretty equal on my list right now,” he said. “I would say everybody that has offered me has been recruiting me pretty hard.”

Clemson, though, holds high appeal with him.

“The family environment, the coaches, and the culture that they have down there, and academics of course,” Kelly said of what stands out about the program. “They are pretty high on my list.”

Kelly is taking his time with the process and doesn’t currently have a timeframe for his future commitment.

As a sophomore last season, he tallied 35 tackles, eight interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, 13 pass breakups and a forced fumble. The outstanding athlete posted 48 catches for 753 yards and five touchdowns on offense, as well.
