Refugio Two-Sport Star Decommits From TCU, Chooses Longhorns
VICTORIA, Texas — He may no longer play football, but Jared Kelley just called a big time audible.
Kelley, who quarterbacked the Bobcats to the 2A Division I State Championship game a year ago before quitting football to focus on baseball, had previously committed to pitch at TCU but now says he’s changed his mind. The senior posted on Twitter Friday that he’s officially de-committing from the Horned Frogs after visiting the University of Texas.
“Made a visit today and couldn’t help but feel right at home! Thank you to TCU for offering me at such a young age but my heart has always been with the Longhorns!”, the tweet said in part.
The announcement is the latest turn in an exciting year for Kelley. The right-handed pitcher was named to the USA Developmental Program last baseball season and helped the 18-and-under National Team win gold at the 2018 Pan American Championship in December.
