One veteran Ole Miss TE is reportedly opting for the transfer portal in the middle of the spring session.

According to various reports — including recruiting analyst Mike Farrell — Casey Kelly is heading for the transfer portal as a grad transfer. He is the younger brother of former Ole Miss QB Chad Kelly and the nephew of former Buffalo Bills QB Jim Kelly.

Kelly was a member of the 2019 recruiting class out of New York.

Kelly has seen playing time in each of the last 3 seasons, including in 2021 when he produced 17 catches for 150 yards and 1 touchdown. Unfortunately, he recorded just 3 catches for 17 yards and a touchdown last season.

Kelly has 28 career catches for 282 yards and 3 touchdowns with the Rebels.
