    Rivals had a new article on Kelly this morning:

    The 6-foot-4, 208-pound defensive end from Westminster (Colo.) Mountain Range recorded 18 quarterback sacks as a freshman and sophomore. He was named first-team all-conference both seasons.

    In 2009 as a junior, Kelly faced constant double teams. He still finished with six sacks and was named second-team all-region.

    "Teams have started to scheme around James a lot," said Mountain Range head coach Bryan Davey. "He is an extraordinary athlete that is just so far above and beyond the rest of the kids he is playing with and against."

    Kelly has a 76-inch wingspan and has a 36-inch vertical. He is also fast, both laterally and straight ahead.

    ***************

    Kelly needs to get himself in the weight room and bulk up for his senior year. If he could get himself up in the 225-230 range, he could significantly raise his stock. Definitely one to watch in Colorado prep football next season.

    Per Scout's Prep Colorado site: Princeton offered.

    He has not accepted yet.

    He is deciding between Princeton and DII schools CSU-Pueblo and Nebraska-Kearney.


    ...
    :huh:


    Kelly is also being contacted by South Dakota State, Army, Harvard and School of Mines.

    Princeton or CSU-Pueblo? I hope I'm never confronted with such a difficult decision

    If money is an issue, a full ride scholly to play football at CSU-P (or the best you can find) might look pretty good in comparison to the daunting price tag of a Princeton education. Just sayin.

    It was the Princeton or Nebraska-Kearney choice that I couldn't believe. I'm pretty sure that's a sentence I'm never going to read again...

    This is a myth.

    All Ivy League schools give scholarships. They just don't do it specifically for athletics. They give out scholarships based on "need". And yes, "need" is in quotation marks for a reason. I'm certain that unless this young man comes from a family of considerable means, he will be receiving a substantial amount of support from Princeton University.

    This.

    These schools have multi-billion dollar endowments just to get young men like this into school.

    Again, they don't give athletic scholarships. They have all kinds of ways to pay for a kid's education, though. And whoa, if he happens to be a really good football player, all the better.

    Funny thing about Princeton, it's not like they depend on their football program to connect to alumni. They are very proud of their athletic program, though. Hockey, basketball, rowing, fencing, tiddlywinks - you name it, they play it at Princeton.

    Princeton has a Quidditch team they take seriously.


    I cannot make this up. Well, I could, but there's no need.

    :lol:

    Yeah, I wasn't making it up, either. I grew up in a Princeton household. I know all about their quirkyness. It's endearing on many levels. You should see their band play.

    Back on topic, I'm sure this kid, if offered, will go to Princeton. The choice between Princeton and Nebraska Kearny or CSU-Pueblo is an easy one. If for no other reason than Princeton - the town - is about a gazillion times better than either Kearny or Pueblo. There's a train that goes directly into NYC from Princeton. No car required. That assumes you have the time to do it.

    Maybe he's waiting for the Harvard offer.

    +1 -- I know two people who went to Harvard on an "academic scholarship" who oh by the way happened to play a little football and played for Harvard. They just don't call it a "football scholarship" thats the only difference.
