Keen a Rising Name

National Recruiting Analyst

Waterford (Mich.) Our Lady of the Lakes junior offensive lineman Brandon Keen visited Michigan State on Tuesday and has a number of other BCS schools looking his way.

One name starting to pop up more and more in the recruiting world is Our Lady of the Lakes offensive lineman Brandon Keen, who has size (6'6, 285-lbs), ability, and several schools looking his way.

"I've heard from Temple, Cincinnati, Virginia, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana and Illinois," he said.

One more school who has been in contact is Michigan State, who had Keen up for a spring practice on Tuesday.

"It was good. I got there and had a tour of Michigan State's facilities, which I hadn't done before. There were a bunch of meetings I was a part of and then I watched practice."

Of course, practice at Michigan State is a lot different than what Keen has seen in high school.

"It was a lot more organized. They had scoreboards up with the times. They already knew what they were doing before they got out there."

The Spartans have not offered yet, but are hoping to evaluate the big in-state prospect in person later this year.

"They said they wanted to see me at a senior invite only camp to see if I could take what learned in the beginning and use it at the end during competition."

Although he played center last season (at Lake Fenton), Keen says he is being recruited by colleges as an offensive tackle.
