Keel's Ready for his Time

Keel's Ready for his Time

Georgia is a deep state in recruiting and a new junior wide receiver in starting to emerge. He impressed Scout recently and he is ready to make a name for himself.

Coray Keel is a 6-foot-2, 185 pound wide receiver and he is a big play wide receiver for South Gwinnett.

He is a new name to many, but he is starting to hear from some schools.

"Georgia, Maryland, Oklahoma State, and Alabama are the schools showing interest right now," Keel told Scout. "I am not hearing from too many, but it is just getting started."

Keel is ready for the process to pick up the pace a little.

"I want my name to get out there in recruiting. I am a deep threat, I can run, and I feel I can make some plays out there, so I am ready to see more schools show interest, get some offers, and all that."

The junior really wants one offer in particular. From a school not too far from home.

"Georgia is the school I really want to offer me," he said. "Georgia is my favorite school and I have been a Bulldog fan since I was young. My family liked them, so I started liking them early, and I have been liking them since.

"I went to their Dawg Night Camp and I think I did well. I ran the 40 yard dash in 4.5 seconds and I caught some balls. I hope to keep showing them what I can do."

Simmons' Thoughts: There is no doubt that Keel is a D1 prospect. He looked good during pre-game, but even better in the game. He took a short pass 80 yards for a touchdown and he was open all night. He has a great burst when he gets the ball and he has good size as well. He is athletic, he will be at over 200 pounds on the next level, and he has a lot of upside. I expect his recruitment to really pick up over the next six months.
