Kelley, a star for Union High School, also held offers from Arkansas, Iowa State, Kansas, Memphis, Oklahoma State, TCU, and Tulsa, per 247Sports. He announced his commitment on Twitter.

Kelley's full note:

"First off I'd like to thank god for blessing with the all the coaches, teammates, friend and most of all my family. I want thank my grandparents for pushing me to do things and my grandpa for crafting me into the man I am today. My grandparents always told me "we are here for you, we support anything you put your mind to, but nothing will come out of it until you put in the work for it". With all that being said I'd like to say thank you to the schools that took a chance on me. After talking on the phone with multiple colleges and coaches for the next 4 years I will be staying home in the state I was raised in grew up watching the college dominate as a kid and always wanted to become a part of this team. I'm so thankful to announce that I will be committing to THE UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA"

Kelley is ranked No. 41 among class of 2018 defensive tackles, and No. 10 in the state of Oklahoma for the class, per 247Sports.
