Kyle Kelley is taking a methodical approach through the recruiting process, going on visits and then probably figuring out over the summer which programs would work best for him.
The Irvine (Calif.) Woodbridge defensive end isn't naming any favorites and said this summer will be important so he can get out and see more schools to try and figure out if he can find his future home.
Kelley has already hit the road in a major way and plans to get back out this summer to even more places.

"Right now I'm visiting schools to get a feel for them," Kelley said. "I've already visited Colorado and then USC and UCLA and Arizona and Arizona State.
"This upcoming Friday and Saturday I'm visiting Washington so Washington will probably be my last visit this spring and then this summer I'll try to visit all the schools that offered me."
Arizona State, Colorado, Florida, NC State, Northern Illinois, UCLA, Utah, Vanderbilt, Washington and Washington State have offered Kelley, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound prospect who said Arizona and Boston College are showing lots of interest and could be next to offer.
Because Kelley is going back on the road this summer he doesn't want to publicize a list of favorites yet.
"All the schools that I've seen I really liked and they're all great schools and have terrific academics," he said.
"It's going to be hard to figure out which one is best because they all offer so many great things. There's not really one school that stands out most right now. I'm just trying to go around and see what I like and which coaches I feel the most comfortable with and who I'd like to play for.
"I'm trying to visit each school over the summer and then I'm planning on narrowing my options over the summer. If there's one school that I really like then I'll commit before my season starts. If there's not I'll just wait until after my season and take official visits."
