Per many reports, the 2014 Indiana football recruiting class gained another member tonight as wide receiver Coray Keel has decided to call Bloomington his future home. Keel, a Georgia native, recently visited for the Missouri game and is the eleventh prospect to commit to Kevin Wilson and staff.
Soon after making his commitment, Keel told the Gwinnett Daily Post the following on why he selected IU:
"Indiana has been my number one school. They were the school I wanted to commit to, but I was concerned because I wanted my mom's opinion, and she didn't go on the visit with me. We talked about it and she talked to the coaches and I got her blessing. The rest of my family supports me, too. That's the number one place I wanted to go, so I jumped on it. The relationship I built with my recruiting coach and position coach was the difference. It was kind of like being on the phone with your buddy. He knows what I can do with the program. We built a great relationship."
The 6-2 play maker joins defensive linemen, Mike Barwick, Jermane Conyers, Nick Carovillano, Willie Yarbary, offensive linemen, Delroy Baker, DeAndre Herron, Wes Martin, defensive back Donovan Clark, wide receiver J-Shun Harris and quarterback Alexander Diamont as future Hoosiers.
According to Rivals.Com, Keel is a two star prospect and picked Indiana over scholarship offers from the likes of Big Ten foes Illinois and Minnesota, Kansas State, Troy, Western Kentucky and the Ohio Bobcats to name some of the programs who tried to add Keel to their roster but in the end Wilson, and the Hoosiers prevailed.
