Gainesville (Fla.) three-star inside linebacker Keith Kelsey Jr. has hit double-digit offers.
"My most recent offer was from Purdue last week," Kelsey Jr. said. "I have 10 offers now."
The 6-foot-1, 217-pound defender isn't in a rush to make a decision, but admits some schools have begun to emerge amongst that group of offers.

"I am still leaving it wide open but I have my favorites as well," Kelsey Jr. said. "I really like USF, Louisville, Iowa State, and Duke."
The Sunshine State linebacker spoke about each of those four schools.
USF: "I just really like the coaches. I am real close with the coaches. Two of my former teammates are going there. They are also close to home."
Louisville: "I like a lot about Louisville. Coach (Charlie) Strong, I am close with him. When he was at Florida, I used to go to their camps when he was there. I am close with a lot of the other coaches on that staff as well and I talk with them often."
Iowa State: "I am really close with their coaches too. Some of their coaches recruited my dad out of high school. I am comfortable with them."
Duke: "I like the program. Not just football, they have a great education too. My dad's old coach (Jim Collins) works there too. That has a lot to do with it too."
During the summer, Kelsey has visited or camped at Florida, Florida State, and South Florida. While the Bulls have offered, he is awaiting word from the Gators or Seminoles.
"All of the visits were great. They are all great programs. I got a chance to see all of the schools," Kelsey Jr. said. "With Florida, they just say it is a process and they are recruiting to fill their needs first. Florida State is losing a couple of linebackers. They just told me they are going to keep up with me during my season. I need a breakout season."
Kelsey Jr. won't rush into making a decision.
"My plan is to take all five of my officials," Kelsey Jr. said. "I will take my visits before I make a decision."
As a junior, Kelsey Jr. recorded 164 tackles. He also had four interceptions and forced two fumbles.
