B.J. Kelley took his first official visit to Arizona State last weekend and liked it so much that he said the Sun Devils will be one of his two finalists.
The other school, Oregon, will get an official visit from the Fresno (Calif.) Central East three-star wide receiver in late November or sometime in December and then Kelley should be ready to make a decision.
Arizona State, though, is moving way up for Kelley, a 6-foot-2, 175-pound prospect who has about 38 receptions for 866 yards and 11 touchdowns this season. Central East is 6-2 and faces Fresno Clovis West this weekend.

Fresno State has been pushing hard and Arizona, Cal Poly, Eastern Michigan, Idaho, Northwestern, Oregon State, San Diego State and Washington State have also offered Kelley but he said Arizona State and Oregon are the finalists.
"Things went great," Kelley said of his Arizona State trip.
"Things were awesome out there. The whole atmosphere, the whole town, was exciting. The people out there are pumped up to go to the games and the staff is great and it's just a place I like. I felt really comfortable out there."
Oregon is also under strong consideration by Kelley, who has always been a fan of the Ducks and said it was like a "dream" when he received that offer. Cal had also been a favorite but the Golden Bears have not offered yet.
A specific date isn't set for Kelley's visit to Eugene but it could happen the weekend of Nov. 26 when the Ducks host Arizona or sometime in December depending on when Oregon's staff can get him on campus.
"I don't know exactly why but I've always loved them," Kelley said. "They have good players out there and I like the offense they run. I'm excited to go out there."
