Kerley is graduating in 2019 and has also received offers from Arizona State, Utah State, Liberty University, Colorado State, Air Force, SMU and North Texas. TCU and Arizona State offered Kerley on Saturday, May 12, and Baylor sent him an offer on Wed., May 16.
“Man it’s crazy, I used to dream about this,” Kerley told Armchair.
Kerley went on to say both Baylor and TCU stand out to him because both are close to home. In terms of visits, he hasn’t planned it out yet, but he said he does plan on making some visits during the summer.
“I don’t really know yet, I’ve been giving it a lot of thought this week,” he said.
Kerley is 6-1 and 185 pounds. He’s measured a 300-pound power clean, 405-pound squat and 250-pound bench. He also measured 4.45 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He’s played on McNeil’s varsity squad since 2015.
The offers he’s received already has given him a boost to stay focused, he said. With the likelihood of more offers coming from schools in Texas, there’s one area he wants to improve on.
“I need to improve on being able to lead my team to more wins,” Kerley said, “and making it into the postseason to play for a championship.”
