From Small Town Football to Modern Day College Football Recruiting

I got a call in January of 2020 from a friend of mine about a young man from a small school in Western Oklahoma (Thomas High School) who he thought had a “chance” to a college football prospect. This prospect was Aden Kelley, a 6’3 280 Defensive Tackle who when we met him had yet to receive a college football offer at ANY level. You read that right, he had no D1, D2, D3 or NAIA offers at the time.

From the time he signed up with Recruit Route Elite until June Aden racked up over two-dozen Division I offers from schools like Syracuse, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Minnesota, just to name a few!

Aden later went on to finish his High School career as a All-American and eventually signed with Oklahoma State.

Listen to his experience working with us and the impact in his and his families life in working with Recruit Route Elite!

Once we signed up, things started happening for our son Aden Kelley. He received his first D1 Football offer within a few weeks, and to date, has received 23 offers before his commitment to Oklahoma State University. To get the BEST for your child, you should sign up with Recruit Route Elite powered by the Bedford Agency! -Martin Kelley, father of Oklahoma State signee, Aden Kelley.
