Caleb Kelly recently worked out at UCLA and USC and he's seen the two other Pac-12 schools in California so the 2016 prospect is making the rounds and figuring out what he likes most.
It is still way too early for the Fresno (Calif.) Clovis West outside linebacker to name any favorites and with so many programs involved, Kelly is still just taking his time.
So far, the 6-foot-3, 215-pound prospect has been offered by Alabama, Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Florida State, Fresno State, Miami, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, UCLA, USC and Washington State.
"I'm still wide open," Kelly said. "I still have so long."
The recent trips to UCLA and USC definitely stood out to Kelly, who played in a 7on7 tournament at USC and camped with the Bruins last week.
The 2016 prospect especially liked working with the current UCLA players and getting coached up a little by the Bruins' staff. He said their recruiting style has been a little laid-back but he prefers that to being over-the-top all the time.
"It was fun getting all the players to come out and coach us and getting all the coaches to come out and coach us, too," Kelly said. "I got to hang out with them more and get used to them more.
"They're really laid back with it. If you don't want to go there then why would they want you there? They're really laid back with it and I think they do a good job. They keep in touch. I like that better than pushing on me all the time."
Kelly, arguably one of the top linebackers in the 2016 class, said he was a little disappointed with his team's performance at USC but he still enjoyed the trip because he got to see the campus.
"SC was cool," Kelly said.
"We did 7on7 and we went to the quarterfinals but I would've liked to go on more. It was our first time together in a while because it's kind of like an all-star team. It was a decent day and getting to check out the facilities it was beautiful there, too."
