WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Xavier Kelly will continue his career on the college gridiron next year but not at Clemson.

The former Wichita East Blue Aces football star announced on his Twitter on Saturday that he will enter his name in the transfer portal.

“I never shied away from hard work or a challenge,” said Kelly in his Twitter post. “My time at Clemson was a challenge that I happily accepted.”

The 6’4″, 305 pound defensive tackle has played three seasons for the Tigers, notching 23 tackles and 2.5 sacks. He was also a part of Clemson’s back-to-back CFB National Championship teams.

The redshirt junior will be a grad transfer, meaning he will be immediately eligible to play for a new school.
