Chad Kelly's fresh start will apparently include a junior college detour.
East Mississippi Community College in Scooba, Miss., has announced Kelly as an addition to its 2014 recruiting class.
Kelly competed for Clemson's starting quarterback job during spring practice, but was dismissed from the program two days after the spring game following a string of incidents, including conflict with coaches over playing time and in-game decisions.
A record-setting high school quarterback at St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute in Buffalo, N.Y. and the nephew of Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, he will play at East Mississippi next fall and would then be able to transfer to another four-year school without restrictions.
He would have two years of eligibility remaining.
