Dismissed Clemson QB visits Alabama
Former touted Clemson quarterback Chad Kelly visited Alabama Sunday, according to 247Sports.
Kelly, who was dismissed at Clemson for conduct detrimental to the team, is currently at East Mississippi Community College in Scooba, Mississippi. He’s the nephew of Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly and was one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks out of high school in 2012.
“I have dismissed Chad Kelly for conduct detrimental to our program,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said in a statement in April. “He has had a pattern of behavior that is not consistent with the values of our program. I hope he will mature and grow from this and become the man and player I know he can be. I wish him nothing but the best in the future academically and athletically.”
At Clemson, Kelly was known for his unorthodox antics, and after redshirting the 2012 season, he went just 10-17 for 58 yards in five appearances.
FSU transfer Jacob Coker has two years of eligibility remaining, and Kelly would have two years starting in 2015.
