Cards continue pursuit of Georgia receiver

6-foot-5, 225-pound wide receiver John Keye of Jackson (Ga.) High School, who currently holds scholarship offers from Louisville and Kentucky, recently provided InsideTheVille.com with an update on his recruiting. Scout.com player highlights also included.

At 6-foot-5, 225-pounds, Jackson (Ga.) High School wide receiver John Keye has become a popular target, both on and off the field.

As a junior, Keye hauled in 46 catches for 797 yards with 9 touchdowns, quickly drawing the attention of many of the major programs throughout the region.

"Basically just about all of the schools in the SEC, plus Louisville and a few others," Keye said of the schools expressing an interest. "Right now I have offers from Kentucky and Louisville."

Keye remains in contact with the two in-state rivals, as well as many of the others that have him on their recruiting radar.

"Kentucky sends me a lot of text messages and I have called UCF, South Carolina and Alabama," he explained. "Louisville keeps sending me stuff. They've been telling me about how they have two Heisman candidates and that if I come there I could become one."

Due to his impressive size, Keye says that a few schools are recruiting him as a tight end and even one tempted to move him to the defensive side of the ball.

"A couple of schools have said tight end and Nebraska called and said they like me as a defensive end - I never played that position before," explained Keye.

For the majority that like the tall target at receiver, Keye explained that in addition to his height advantage, that they like his agressiveness.

"They're saying how they like how I go after the ball," he said. "I'll go after anything."

While he currently claims no favorites, Keye said that the Cardinals will remain under strong consideration throughout the recruiting process.

"Louisville's offer came first," he said. "It's a real good offer and it was a real surprise. Right now I'm looking at Louisville a lot."
