Scouting Report and Projection: One of my very favorite kind of players because he plays with so much attitude. He said he plays until the echo of the whistle which sometimes gets him in trouble as opposing players end up wanting to start something and they often end up with a penalty flag thrown against him. “I get warnings sometimes from officials, but more often they are throwing flags on the other guy," Kegel said. Physically, he is big, strong and fairly mature for his size and a perfect masher-style blocker to compete for playing time at guard. Give him a red-shirt season and he should be set for whatever happens next.
