Cam’Ron Kelly, one of the most coveted defensive back prospects in the 2019 class, visited Clemson on Saturday for the Florida State game.
“I loved it,” he told The Clemson Insider. “It was amazing.”
The four-star cornerback from Chesapeake (Va.) Oscar Smith said a lot stood out about his experience.
“The environment, the coaches, the players and the energy was out of this world!” he said.
It marked the first game-day visit to Clemson for Kelly, who is ranked as a top-150 prospect in the next cycle regardless of position.
Kelly (6-2, 195) said he enjoyed the atmosphere in Death Valley during the Tigers’ 31-14 victory over the Seminoles.
“It was unreal,” he said. “(The fans) are crazy hype, and there is so much love.”
Clemson offered Kelly after he visited the school in June. He also visited Clemson on a Sunday in October on the way home from an Alabama visit.
Kelly caught up with Mike Reed and Mickey Conn on Saturday and also spent time with Brent Venables and Dabo Swinney.
What did he hear from Clemson’s head coach?
“How they want me, I fit in perfectly and that I check all the boxes for them and that I’m their guy,” Kelly said.
Kelly carries more than 30 offers in total, featuring ones from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State and Stanford among others.
Clemson continues to hold down a top spot on Kelly’s list.
“Clemson was always a top contender and very high on my list, but they are definitely in the running and a top contender still,” he said.
Kelly said he has not yet decided when he will make his decision.
As a sophomore last season, Kelly tallied 35 tackles, eight interceptions, 13 pass breakups and a forced fumble. He also recorded 48 receptions for 753 yards and five touchdowns offensively.
