Class of 2020 CB / WR Antonio Kelly Jr. of Pahokee HS has a pretty good vision of what he wants to accomplish at the next level and is mapping out a way to get there. He has started to have some contact from a few schools and is planning on attending the College Football Prospects event this summer at Lagrange College where there will be several college coaches from across the country in attendance. Kelly would like to major in sports medicine and knows he’ll have to put in the work to get there.
Antonio, who is being recruited as a DB, is a confident, aggressive player who shows nice closing speed and good hands when defending the pass but admits he needs to be a little more patient in coverage. With good speed around the 4.5 mark he also hits bigger than his 5’10” 160 pound frame. Kelly is keeping his focus 100% on football and will also be training with his coach in the off season to improve his game.
Getting exposure can be a very important part of the recruiting process and Antonio hopes to get his name noticed by visiting and camping at some big time programs such as FIU, Miami, Florida, and FSU not to mention his 7 v 7 play with Florida Fire 9. That will hopefully lead to hearing from some of his top schools including Southern Miss, UCF, Kentucky, LSU, and Georgia.
