Kansas State Football Recruiting: Recent Decommit Xavier Kelly May Be Leaning Towards Michigan

Four-star Wichita (KS) defensive end Xavier Kelly decommitted from his pledge to the Kansas State Wildcats on Saturday, and there's a solid chance that his next commitment could be to the Michigan Wolverines and new head coach Jim Harbaugh.

"I have been in frequent contact with Michigan," Kelly said, via 247Sports. "I do not believe I will be visiting this spring, but I may make it later this summer, and am definitely going to visit Michigan at some point."'

Michigan offered Kelly two weeks ago, and due to his connections with people in the Ann Arbor area, many believe that the top defensive end prospect will move Michigan to the top of their list or at least near it.

For now, Kelly also holds offers from major programs such as Arkansas, Oregon and Oklahoma State, so he has plenty to think about when he makes his next commitment. With that being said, Kansas State has seemingly fallen of the pace despite the school's proximity to Kelly's home in Wichita.
