Not surprisingly, a 6-foot-4, 280-pound defensive lineman is in high demand in major college football recruiting circles.
Richmond (Texas) George Ranch defensive tackle Kingsley Keke has seen his offer list grow to double figures during the past several weeks, and two huge rivals joined that group Wednesday. First, Keke received an offer from Oklahoma, then talked to Charlie Strong later in the evening and got a Texas offer.
Keke's size and athleticism make him a legitimate high-major defensive line prospect. His versatility also makes him a valuable player. Keke plays an odd-front defensive end position for George Ranch, but is projected as a defensive tackle at the college level. Keke told LonghornDigest.com on Wednesday evening that he has experience playing multiple spots along the front.
Keke possesses a good get-off at the snap and is a fluid athlete for a player with such a large frame and obvious mass. He's active in pursuit when flushing quarterbacks from the pocket. Perhaps his best trait is his punch. He disengages from offensive linemen with frequency thanks to a strong punch on first contact.
With Texas and Oklahoma joining the race, Keke could soon get to 20 total offers.
