Kelly is listed at 6-8 and listed himself as a PF in this camp. I think he is more of a combo-forward with his perimeter skills. His blend of athleticism and skill make him one of the top prospects in his class in the state.

Kelly has real length for a young prospect on the wing. A right-handed shooter, he even showed range out beyond the 3-point line in this eval.

Kelly played very under control here today in this camp. He never tried to do too much, but he showed elite skill at the same time. He hit the pull-up jumper off of a Russell Westbrook-like freeze dribble. Then he dunked on the break off an in/out dribble. He showed nice vision with the pass. All in all he has versatility to play multiple positions on the floor.
