Todd Kelly Jr. planning western trip

Stanford has begun to show strong interest in Todd Kelly Jr. Recruiters from the school were at Knoxville (Tenn.) Webb on Thursday, where the Watch List prospect just wrapped up his junior season.

"Good caliber team with great academics," Kelly Jr. said when asked about the school.

Via visits, Kelly Jr. has mostly shown interest in schools in the east part of the United States. Still, he's been very open-minded about any school that has recruited him. He said a visit to see Stanford is in the works.

"I'm going to visit and see what it's like," he said. "You won't know until you experience it."

Kelly Jr. said he'll likely take that visit in the spring. He said he'll also try to visit USC and UCLA.
