Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze will be waiting a couple of days before making a decision on junior college quarterback signee Chad Kelly.
The former Clemson student-athlete agreed Monday to a plea deal and was ordered to 50 hours of community service stemming from an incident outside a Buffalo night club on Dec. 21, four days after signing with the Rebels. Kelly was arrested and charged with multiple misdemeanors. He was accused of punching a bouncer and threatening to "get my AK-47 and spray this place."
Tuesday morning, Freeze told David Johnson of Rebels 247 he has not yet decided what to do with his troubled quarterback.

From the report:
Freeze said he plans to have a phone conversation with Kelly, who remains in his home state of New York, Tuesday night.
“The plan for Chad is a phone call tonight with him and his family, then I will take a couple of days and make a decision based on everything after the call,” Freeze said in a text message to Rebels247 Tuesday morning.
Kelly, a former four-star recruit in the 2012 class, led East Mississippi Community College to a 12-0 record and the junior college national championship this past season. He was dismissed from the Clemson program last April.
With Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace graduating, Kelly - if he remains with the Rebels - is expected to battle for the starting job.
