Rivals Ranking: 4-star

Notable: Kelleher was named to the 2013 American Family Insurance All-USA South Carolina football team after starting on the offensive line for four consecutive seasons at Wando High School.
Kelleher enrolled early at Florida and is working out with the team, preparing for spring practice. While his early enrollment will help him get a leg up on the field, Kelleher was already ahead of schedule in the classroom. Kelleher informed Gator Country that based on AP classes and dual-credit classes that he took in high school he will be a semester ahead of the rest of the recruiting class in the classroom. Kelleher wants to study engineering at Florida.
Quotable: An excellent student, Kelleher said that the academics at Florida really sold him on the school. He enrolled early in January and is already ahead of schedule in the classroom.
“Academics are very important to me. I saw the engineering program and that the credits they accepted through AP and dual-credit meant that when I get there, I will already have an entire semester knocked out before I even step foot on campus. That’s a real plus, especially for engineering. The coaches really push the academics.”
