"This feels great. I never thought it would feel like this," Kelly said after he teared up several times before announcing his decision by pulling on a Tigers cap during a news conference.
Kelly led Buffalo's St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute to a New York State Catholic School title as a junior last season.
He finished with 2,159 passing yards and 24 touchdowns with eight interceptions. He also had 1,057 rushing yards and 15 more scores.
NORTH CAROLINA: The school released documents showing a group of Tar Heel football players accumulated more than $13,000 in parking citations over a 31/2-year period.
The documents show that the players combined for 395 citations between March 2007 and August 2010, though the records don't specify which players received each violation. The citations ranged in penalty from $5 for improperly displaying a parking permit to $250 for parking in a fire lane or in a handicapped parking space.
The total amount of the citations was $13,185..
The school also released hundreds of pages of phone records of head coach Butch Davis, athletic director Dick Baddour and former assistant coach John Blake, who resigned in September. Blake's ties to late NFL agent Gary Wichard became a focus of the NCAA probe into improper benefits and academic misconduct.
The NCAA has informed the school that it plans to complete its investigation this month.
TENNESSEE: Ron Jarvis , nicknamed "Hammerhead" for his toughness as a Tennessee fullback, died Thursday. He was 66.
