It's hard to watch Jermaine Kelly's highlights and not wonder why he wasn't a more national type recruit. I don't know why every program in the country wasn't in on this kid. He has the length at corner that's become so desired by everyone, and the speed and athleticism to be able to man up to the elite skill players in the Pac-12. From Greg Biggins:

For me, and I've said this a few times today, he has more upside than any other corner in the West. I like Priest Willis a lot but I think Kelly is a better natural athlete, more flexible in his hips, better top end speed. He's a great looking WR prospect too, could easily play on that side of the ball if needed

It's unlikely that Kelly redshirts as a freshman - he's simply too talented to keep off the field. He'll compete for the starting spot opposite Marcus Peters, and will be a big factor in the return game. He routinely took it to the house when the ball made its way into his hands on kickoffs and punts. Kelly could have also been a 4* caliber recruit at WR so if he can pick up the speed and physicality of division one football he could quickly be the kind of secondary player who locks down his side of the field and terrifies opposing QB's with his ball skills.
