Kicker Plans to Join AState

With the departure of the top kicker in Sun Belt Conference history, the Arkansas State Red Wolves hope they have taken a step toward filling that void.

Dallas Kepler, 6-foot-1, 195-pound combo kicker from Mount Paran Christian School in Roswell, Ga. He committed to the Red Wolves on his visit Saturday night.

"I really like it here," he said. "It is a cool town and I can feel the love for the football team. It's a special place. Not too big and not too small. A very good college town."

He is ranked among the top 50 kickers in the country and attended several of the top kicking camps around the nation.

Kepler will have invited walk-on status at AState. He was also offered the same at Penn State and Southern Miss.
