2017 athlete Mason Keeler holds one scholarship offer and he has interest from regional players of the likes of Colorado and Wyoming. Keeler and the Broomfield Eagles sit at 7-2 and they’re ready for a deep run in Colorado’s 4A playoffs.
The tall target and defender lines up all over the field for the Eagles, logging time at tight end, linebacker and safety. He weighs in the 210-225 range and stands 6-foot-4.5. Colleges believe the Broomfield product projects as a tight end at the next level.
Keeler was on hand for a recent Colorado Buffaloes game and he left Boulder impressed by the Buffs. He was also in Laramie for Wyoming’s humongous upset victory over Boise State on Oct. 29. “The visit was great. The coaches were unbelievable. I spent most of my time on the sideline chatting with coach [Gary] Bernardi,” Keeler said of CU. “We talked about the atmosphere of Boulder, what CU has to offer, talked about some tight end things.”
Keeler camped with the Buffs this past summer. CSU-Pueblo is the lone offer so far with the 2017 hopeful looking to reel in more as we head to February. South Dakota is another program that has shown interest. Keeler said running into players you meet a camps is a rewarding part of visiting colleges.“That’s pretty cool, I got to catch up with them again. We all recognize faces, you go to these camps for two hours and all you remember is the faces,” Keeler said.
At almost 6-foot-5, Keeler hits the hardwood for the Broomfield basketball team. On the gridiron, he’s a versatile player who can help a team in a variety of ways, on both sides of the ball if called upon. “I’ve been playing receiver, linebacker and free safety,” Keeler said of where. “Most of these [recruiting] things have been tight end related. I can play anywhere.”null
