Jermaine Kelly stopped by UCLA again this past weekend to watch practice with some teammates and again the Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian wide receiver was impressed during the stay.
The 6-foot, 175-pound prospect already lists an offer from the Bruins and said he has high interest in them because he believes it would be a great fit.
Kelly stopped by UCLA with Salesian teammates Jihad Vercher and 2014 standouts Marquis Ware and Jamardre Cobb.
"We went down to practice to see how they run things and it was very cool," Kelly said. "I loved it. When they're running plays they have the crowd noise so it felt like we were at the Rose Bowl. It was very energetic.
"I talked to (wide receivers coach) Eric Yarber and the coaches want to have a meeting about things but I'm just waiting patiently with them."
The Salesian standout lists offers from UCLA, Arizona, Arizona State and Hawaii and said Cal, Oklahoma and Nebraska have started to show interest. The Huskers like him at cornerback while every other school is looking for him to play wide receiver.
As for UCLA, the Bruins definitely stand out in his recruitment but Kelly said he's not prepared yet to make his commitment.
"I love their program," Kelly said.
"It would be a great opportunity if I could go there. That's why I'm up there every time I can be to watch them practice and interact with the coaches. It would be a great experience going there."
