Ohio State is getting a second chance at impressing one of its biggest targets in the 2023 class.
After taking his official visit to Ohio State on Sept. 3 for the Buckeyes' 21-10 season-opening win against Notre Dame, five-star defensive end Keon Keeley will be making a second visit to Columbus just three weeks later.
According to reports by On3’s Hayes Fawcett and 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong, Keeley will make an unofficial visit to Ohio State on Saturday for the Buckeyes' game against Wisconsin.
Ohio State made a great impression on Keeley on his official visit, as defensive line coach Larry Johnson accompanied Keeley onto the field during pregame warmups. As he entered Ohio Stadium, Keeley grinned from ear to ear upon seeing a sold-out crowd. The Buckeyes have made enough of an impression on the Florida prospect that he will make his second visit in a month, this time on his family's own dime.
Keeley took an unofficial visit to Florida on Sept. 10. He has an official visit to Alabama, considered by many to be the front runner in his recruitment, scheduled for Oct. 8.
Johnson and company seem to have done enough to be at least in heavy consideration for the top-rated edge prospect in 247Sports’ composite rankings. Now they will get a second chance to make a considerable impression on the talented pass rusher.
