4-star has an ‘amazing’ time at Clemson

The day after Clemson’s game against The Citadel on Nov. 18, elite 2019 defensive back prospect Cam’Ron Kelly made his third visit to Clemson this fall.

The four-star from Chesapeake (Va.) Oscar Smith stopped by Clemson that Sunday on his way home from a Georgia visit.

Once again, Kelly (pictured left-center) really enjoyed his time on campus.

“It was amazing,” Kelly told The Clemson Insider. “I love the coaches and the environment there.”

Kelly (6-2, 195) spent time with co-defensive back coaches Mickey Conn and Mike Reed as well as defensive line coach Todd Bates, defensive coordinator Brent Venables and head coach Dabo Swinney.

“They love me and I fit their program,” Kelly said of what he heard from the coaches. “And they want me to be a Tiger and be a part of the family.”

Kelly’s latest stop at Clemson occurred just one week after he attended the Tigers’ game against Florida State on Nov. 11. He also made a visit to Clemson in early October en route home from a visit to Alabama.

Kelly is getting increasingly comfortable with Clemson and continues to strengthen his relationship with the staff.

“They are family to me,” Kelly said. “Nothing but love. We are very close.”

Clemson dispensed an offer to Clemson over the summer. He carries more than 30 offers in total, including ones from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Penn State, Stanford and Wisconsin.

Kelly feels the Tigers are among those pursuing him the hardest.

“Every school is recruiting me hard,” he said, “but Clemson is recruiting me very hard.”

Clemson remains in a strong position for Kelly.

“I’m weighing out my options right now,” he said, “but Clemson is very high on my list.”

Kelly plans to commit before his senior season next year. A decision could come as early as this spring.

He is ranked as a top-10 cornerback and top-125 overall prospect in the 2019 class.
