Former Clemson quarterback Chad Kelly visited Alabama this weekend.
Kelly, the nephew of former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly, posted a photo on his Facebook account from his unofficial visit to Alabama. He visited the school with a few of his East Mississippi Community College teammates, including defensive lineman D.J. Jones and former LSU defensive back Jeryl Brazil, according to East Mississippi head coach Buddy Stephens.
Kelly landed at East Mississippi after he was dismissed by Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney for conduct detrimental to the program. Kelly argued with coaches during Clemson's spring game and was involved in an alleged off-field incident that involved a car accident with a former Miss South Carolina.
Kelly was considered the frontrunner to replace Tajh Boyd as Clemson's starting quarterback this season. Instead, he will compete with Todd Mays to start at the defending junior college national champion. After a year at East Mississippi, Kelly will have two years of eligibility remaining.
He was the nation's No. 4 dual-threat quarterback coming out of high school in 2012, according to Rivals.com. He had multiple SEC offers, including from Alabama and LSU, but chose Clemson.
Kelly doesn't have a new offer from Alabama thus far. He also recently visited Ole Miss.
Alabama doesn't have a quarterback committed in its class of 2015, but is actively pursuing numerous quarterbacks.
