    Kell's recruitment seems to be gaining steam slowly, with that hometown SDSU offer coming only recently. Per Agustin Gonzalez (he writes for AztecSportsReport), Kell had 31 yesterday and 28 today.

    Watching the highlights, he fits a similar profile to Dorian Pickens: 6'4", well-built, solid athlete, willing to get his teammates involved, but really excels as a shooter. His offer list should be expanding soon, and with Boyle in attendance today, CU could be among those schools, as the search for a shooter continues.

    As of now, SDSU has to be considered the favorite, and he's stated he prefers to stay close to home, but he's also keeping his options open for now and seems to be anxious to see what other offers follow.

    Upgraded from 3*; 70 grade; #60 SF on ESPN to 4*; 80 grade; #20 SF.

    Here's what their latest scouting report says:

    Strengths:
    If coaches are looking for one of the most gifted scorers in the west coast class of 2014, they should look no further than the silky smooth Kell. Kell can score at all three levels due to his skill set and scoring savvy. His 3-point shot is feathery and he is deceptively crafty off the bounce. Making sound decisions (savvy) in transition with his passing acumen and getting into the passing lanes on defense offers other reasons why his stock is elevating. He isn't the quickest nor the fastest prospect, but it would be hard-pressed to find a more skilled and college-ready wing-type in California.
    Weaknesses:
    Kell needs to continue to work on improving his quickness and bounce. He is a solid athlete, but he lacks true explosion while attacking the rim. Defensively, he needs to improve his ability to slide his feet while guarding quicker wing-types.
    Bottom Line:
    In the class of 2014, there are not too many wings (if any) as offensively skilled (pure scorer) than Kell. He lacks elite-level athleticism, but he's crafty and plays on balance all time.

    So much for the interest level slowly gaining steam here, he blew up this weekend! Looking at the offer lists, Few is in on a ton of the prospects our staff likes.

    Per Josh Gershon, Kell cut his list and we didn't make it.

    SDSU, Oregon, Zona, Zags, Vanderbilt, USC, U.C. Irvine & UCLA were his list.

    Just FWIW, he had an offer from Virginia too. They came in late, but didn't make the final cut.

    Didn't know about the Virginia offer. Just listening to Kell in interviews tho, seemed clear he wants to stay close to home.

    They poke around recruiting the west due to Bennett's days at Washington State. Joe Harris (first team all-ACC is from Chelan, WA), they offered Kell, they just made Michael Humphrey's cut, they got a solid PG in London Perrantes out of Crespi Carmelite last year who had some Pac-12 offers. Washington State fans are still kicking themselves over losing Bennett. It would be a very, very different story up in Pullman right now had he stuck around. Look for a monster year from them this season, they are stacked.

    CU had to back off Kell a bit. Wanted him, but not at the expense of being able to sign a big in this class. Not sure we would have beaten fUCLA for him, but we didn't really get a chance to find out.
