One of the most impressive quarterbacks at the Nike combine was Sam Keller. His form was outstanding and he showed a sweet delivery.
Northern California’s number one quarterback guru, former Cal coach Roger Theder, has tutored Keller. When you see Keller throw the ball you know he’s a good student.
Keller has the arm strength to make all the throws. He has the size the D-I schools like, too. Keller stands 6-foot-4, weighs 210 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.84 seconds. He completed 178 passes out of 275 attempts for 2,650 yards and 28 touchdowns while completing 65% of his passes as a junior.
Keller is leaning toward Michigan, Illinois and K State; all three have offered Keller a scholie.
Notre Dame is getting into the hunt for his services and the Irish were by the school today (May 21). ASU and Oregon are also in the loop for the services of this talented signal-caller.
As of right now the only camp that Keller has in his future is the Oregon one-day camp on June 9th. There is a possibility that Keller will attend the Michigan and or the Illinois camp as well.
Other than outstanding skills, Keller also has other important intangibles that the D-I schools. He has the fire and competitive spirit you love to see in your quarterback prospect.
Keller is expected to make his college decision in the summer. Pac10Recruiting will keep you in informed on the recruiting adventures of the very talented Mr. Keller.
