Clemson Lands Jim Kelly’s Nephew

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Clemson is landing a Kelly at quarterback. Chad Kelly, nephew of Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly and a highly recruited high school prospect, has committed to play for the Tigers. He announced the decision Thursday, a day after visiting with Clemson coach Dabo Swinney in South Carolina. Kelly led Buffalo’s St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute to a New York State Catholic School title as a junior last season. He finished with 2,159 passing yards and 24 touchdowns with eight interceptions. He also had 1,057 rushing yards and 15 more scores. Kelly, who also considered Alabama and Florida State, made a name for himself in becoming the first to win the NFL-sponsored “Punt, Pass and Kick” competition in four age groups.
