It’s taken around two weeks for Oregon’s top quarterback target, Ryan Kelley (4-Star/Chandler, Ariz./Rivals250) to break his silence following a visit to Eugene.
It was worth the wait.
“I liked everything about Oregon,” said Kelley. “The stadium, the tradition, the atmosphere and how the players all got along.”
While only a junior, Kelley is a front runner in the minds of analysts and coaches alike to be one of the next great quarterbacks at the collegiate level.
“They talked about how I fit the offense and they think I have one of the strongest arms in the country. They told me they are going to stay recruiting me until they know if I’m coming … they said I’m the guy for them.”
By most accounts, Kelley is more of a pocket passer than Oregon typical targets. However, the 6-foot-2, 170 lb. signal caller is more than capable of taking off on both designed runs and broken plays. In addition, much has been made of his arm strength.
It’s no joke; Kelley has a howitzer. WTD!!!
