USC recruiting notes: Kelly eyes trips

HAYWARD, Calif. -- At first, it was effortless for Caleb Kelly to ramble off his list of offers.

Oklahoma, Cal, USC and Fresno State, his hometown school, each extended a scholarship offer, in that order, before a flurry arrived midway through the spring evaluation period. After his highlight tape made the rounds and coaches saw Kelly in person, the fast rising outside linebacker/defensive end held a dozen offers, and that might only be the beginning as his ever-important junior season approaches.
