Keel's drawing a lot of interest

Three schools have offered Coray Keel a scholarship and many others are showing interest in him. Who is showing the most interest? Find out that and more here...

"Georgia State offered me last week and I also have offers from UAB and Troy," Coray Keel told Scout.

Those offers are nice, but Keel wants more.

"Oh yeah, I am not satisfied with just three offers. I want more. I am working hard and I want to show the coaches this spring what all I can do."

Plenty of college coaches will make their way through Gwinnett County in May and Keel expects many to stop in and to watch him practice at South Gwinnett.

A trio of schools close to home just had Keel on their campus and he expects them to be on the practice field keeping a close eye on them.

"Clemson, Georgia, and Georgia Tech have all been showing me a lot of interest lately.

"I went up to Clemson to watch them practice and that was a lot of fun. I talked a lot with Coach [Jeff] Scott and he said he would be down to see me this spring. I think they are very interested in me.

"Georgia and Georgia Tech have really been picking it up too. Georgia Tech has been sending me a lot of mail. I got about 14-15 hand-written letters from the entire coaching staff the other day.

"Georgia showed me a lot of attention when I visited them a couple of weeks ago. I sat down with Coach [Mark] Richt, Coach [Tony] Ball, and Coach [Bryan] McClendon while I was there and all said UGA was interested in me. I have been talking to Coach McClendon for a while and he told me he would be at my school in the spring."

It doesn't stop with those three schools. They just happen to be close to home and they may be showing the most interest right now, but other schools like Louisville, Maryland, Mississippi State, and Vanderbilt among others are recruiting this 6-foot-1, 190 pound wide receiver out of Snellville, Ga.

He is still open to all of his options, but the school closest to home still leads.

"Georgia is still on top," he said. "That has not changed. I just like Georgia. I will consider anyone who offers me though. I am just waiting to see who all offers me."

Keel plans to stay very busy this summer. He would like to attend one-day camps at Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Vanderbilt and a few others.
