Kegler felt he had a good showing at NBPA Top 100 Camp, and showed that he is capable of doing a lot of things on the court along with making improvements to his game. “The camp went well,” said Kegler. “The competition has been great. You have to bring it every day and there are kids from all the different circuits so it is really good.” “I have been working to get to the free throw line more and also making three pointers,” Kegler continued. At different points in time in his recruitment Kegler has been mentioned with Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Arizona State, Ohio State, Baylor, LSU, Memphis, and many others. About where things stand at the moment, Kegler said, “I am in no way committing now. I am open to anybody. As of right now I haven’t thought about visits.” Since getting the job in Starkville, Ben Howland has been extremely active in recruiting the state’s top talent with Kegler being one of his main priorities. When it comes to Mississippi State, Kegler said, “Me and Coach Howland have been building a relationship. I really like Mississippi State and Coach Howland. I think it is a really good school.” Also Arizona State is firmly in the mix. Assistant coach Brian Merritt has a longstanding relationship with Kegler, and they remain in close contact. “Me and (Merritt) talk every day,” noted Kegler. “We have a great relationship, so Arizona State is a school that I am definitely considering.” At the moment Kegler doesn’t appear close to making a decision, but he does know what he will be looking for in a school when the time comes. “I just want to go to a school that has a great coach who is going to let me play and do my thing,” said Kegler. “I also want to go to a place where there is a coach that I trust. Beyond that I want to go somewhere that has a history of putting kids in the league.”
