Jaylen Kelly-Powell received an offer from the Huskers on Dec. 5, 2015.

Kelly-Powell took his first visit to Nebraska on June 24. After the visit, he sent a tweet that said, "Thank you Nebraska for a wonderful weekend. Appreciate all the love."

After watching his performance at that camp, The World-Herald's Sam McKewon wrote this:

"The four-star worked out and didn't disappoint. Kelly-Powell has great feet and moves well with receivers when they get out of their breaks. He wasn't as physical...but he was every bit as competitive, and very good on deep balls."

Kelly-Powell returned to Lincoln on an official visit during the weekend of Sept. 3 for the season opener against Fresno State. While he was on the sidelines before the game, Kelly-Powell snapped a picture with Dwyane Wade.

"The fan base in Nebraska is just unbelievable," Kelly-Powell told Huskers Illustrated after the visit.

In June, Kelly-Powell participated in the Sound Mind, Sound Body camp in Detroit, which had Husker coaches in attendance, including Mike Riley.

The week after his Nebraska official, he took an official visit to Oregon, tweeting he "loved every minute." He also took an official visit to Wisconsin on Oct. 15.

Nebraska wasn't able to land him, though. Kelly-Powell committed to Michigan on Nov. 15.

He posted a SPARQ score of 86.13 at The Opening Regional in Chicago in May. That included a 4.66-second 40-yard dash, 4.35-second 20-yard shuttle, 33-foot kneeling powerball toss and 33.6-inch vertical jump. His performance at that event earned him an invite to The Opening Finals.
