Kelly, DT at Clemson, has entered the transfer portal. Does KSU have interest and is Xavier interested in KSU?

Kelly, from Wichita, was once a KSU commit. Maybe he would like to come home.

Our staff is definitely interested. Saw a couple staff members follow him on twitter. Figuring we graduated so many DL, his position and experience would be a nice addition

With our recent de-commit, we should have an extra scholarship available. Can't have too many big D-linemen.

Nice article about a great player and a great person! I hope we can land him. He would be a great addition to our DL, even if for just one season.

I think it would be hard pressed to find a better place for a DT to transfer into as we have a gaping experience hole at that spot.

Depending upon his end goal, it could work out well at KSU. If he wants to make it to the NFL, I'd guess he'll be looking for an SEC school first since they're more likely to have scouts watching their games.

Scouts watch every program of just about every level of football (FBS and FCS). If a kid is a ball layer worthy of being in the NFL, they will find him. It could effect what round of the draft he goes in though. NFL scouts scour college football for quality players. they watch so much football, it would make the average fan puke.

At one time, Northwest Mo State had more players in the NFL than K-State. Most had dropped down from D1 but still the scouts will find what they're looking for anywhere.
