IOWA CITY, Iowa – Andrew Keller grew up watching his home state Wisconsin Badgers play football against Iowa.
Now, the 2022 tight end has the opportunity to play for the Hawkeyes after receiving a scholarship offer on Wednesday.
“It feels great,” Keller said. “Growing up watching the Badgers and watching them play Iowa every year, it’s crazy to think that I could be putting on the helmet, putting on the jersey and running out.”
The 6-foot-6, 215-pound Keller said he had been in contact with Iowa director of recruiting Tyler Barnes, but didn’t expect an offer to come so soon.
Keller, a native of Waunakee, Wis., said Iowa’s NFL pipeline stands out to him.
“Tight End U, baby,” Keller said. “They produce studs at tight end. They’ve got one of the best tight ends in the league right now in George Kittle. They just produce studs. That’s my initial thought on Iowa.”
Keller also has offers from Eastern Illinois, Eastern Michigan, Iowa State, Michigan State and Toledo, according to Rivals.com.
Keller said he is working on setting up a visit to Iowa and is headed to Iowa State on June 11.
Iowa currently has two players committed to its 2022 recruiting class in four-star defensive lineman Aaron Graves and three-star defensive lineman Caden Crawford.
Keller said he does not currently have any favorites or a timeline for a decision.
