Kelly not worried about visits

Jermaine Kelly had been considering visits to Arizona State and Washington but the UCLA commit said he's only focused on his senior season and isn't worried about trips at this point in the year.
Kelly missed Los Angeles Salesian's season opener because of transfer rules but the 6-foot-2, 185-pound three-star prospect will play this weekend and that's his main concern right now.
"We played last weekend but I didn't because I wasn't cleared yet after transferring from San Pedro," Kelly said. "I'm cleared to play this week so I'm ready.
"That's what I was thinking with those visits but right now I really don't know because I was told to just focus on the season and make sure I don't get hurt.
"I can worry about all that stuff later so right now I'm going to follow directions and I'm just going to play the games and wait on those visits."
Kelly committed to the Bruins this summer and is happy with the new coaching staff, the direction of the program and that the coaches told him they're looking for him to play wide receiver and defensive back.
The draw to visit some Pac-12 schools might be enough to get Kelly on the road sometime later in the recruiting process but at this point he's only concerned about playing the games and not taking trips to other programs.
Arizona State and Washington were the schools mentioned by Kelly, who has offers from those two along with Houston, Arizona, Hawaii, Memphis, Minnesota and San Diego State.
"I'm not really looking around," Kelly said. "I'm just trying to finish the season without getting hurt because we have some guys out. I don't want that to happen to me so right now I'm just staying focused. Those visits might come but I'm just focused on Friday.
"Jim Mora is a great coach. Good things are going to happen over there and I felt like I wanted to be a part of it."
