Cody McCarthy has three offers and the Boise (Idaho) Bishop Kelly three-star inside linebacker is hopeful more might be coming because many schools - including Boise State, Arkansas, North Carolina and others - are showing interest.
"I'm playing pretty well on both sides of the ball," Kelly said. "I'm running the ball a lot, scoring a lot of touchdowns, catching the ball out of the backfield and scoring a lot of touchdowns. It's been pretty fun getting to do both. I've made a bunch of sacks and forced a fumble, too, and picked up a couple fumbles.
"Things are kind of moving for me. Arkansas hasn't officially offered me yet but coach (Bobby) Petrino told my coach that he and his coaching staff are flying out after the season. I don't know what that means. I can't count my chickens before they hatch. I don't know if they're going to offer me. It hasn't happened yet. It sounds like hopefully they will."
Kelly, a 6-foot-1, 228-pound prospect, has about 125 tackles and 10 rushing touchdowns this season, contributing on both sides of the ball and showing he's one of the best players in the state of Idaho. Rivals.com rates him as the No. 5 prospect in the Rocky Mountain state rankings.
He's hopeful more offers are on the way. Kelly said Boise State was at his last game and that Stanford and Oregon State are showing more interest as well. Air Force and Army are two other programs that have been involved.
So far, Army, Idaho State and Washington State have offered Kelley, the No. 36 inside linebacker nationally by Rivals.com.
Kelley hasn't taken any official visits yet and is waiting until after his season for those trips. Until the Bishop Kelley standout figures out which other programs might offer he's going to take things slow and then schedule trips later.
"I know they'll all be after the season," Kelley said. "We talked about one to North Carolina. Army and Air Force are talking about flying me out. It's all talk right now, nothing official yet. That's how everything is going right now. It's all unofficial. It's happening but nothing is set yet. It's a big waiting game."
