"Daiquan Kelly is a rare athlete. His rare combination of size, speed and agility make him a special player. He is tough and aggressive and will work hard day in and day out. Like Steven (Gonzalez), they are both great competitors on the field as well as in the weight room. Kelly will be a perfect fit in coach Shoop's scheme. He is also a big-time hitter that will loosen some chin straps while in Happy Valley. Daiquan is very coachable and like Steve he has a chance for greatness at PSU!"
