Love that they're all local to get things rolling. It seems like they've been recruiting pretty heavily in Florida, Michigan and PA, as well.

Riley Keller...*** QB from Toledo Whitmer commits. HUGE get. He had offers from major schools as a sophomore...including Ole Miss. Loeffler had been recruiting him at BC.

It really is. As I don't live in the area, I haven't seen him play at all. I can probably find him on YouTube somewhere, but I'd be interested in hearing from any fans that have actually seen him play and are more familiar with his game, pros and cons. Thanks.

I have seen him play 2-3 times. I know one of the Whitmer coaches very well and he thinks it is a great get for BG. The Whitmer program is run much like a college program and he is very used to the mental side of the game as well as the work ethic. He is a pro-style type which fits the Loeffler system very well.
You also might be interested that his dad played baseball at BG.

Per 247 sports, he is the top pro style QB in the state. This says wonders about Loeffler as a recruiter.

Whitmer...along with Toledo Central Catholic...is a perennial contender for a deep playoff run. Keller has been their starting QB since he was a freshman.

2-star (doesn't mean anything considering he played in a small district that never has accurate ratings) TE and baseball player with offers from most of the MAC, plus a few others like UConn, Charlotte, and some Ivy Leaguers. Looks like he was also getting some attention from Wake Forest, but BG had two things that no other school could offer.

1) He's also going to play baseball for Coach Schmidt (6'5" 240lbs baseball player...yikes!)
2) His girlfriend

Another commitment from RB/DB Jadarrien Burns out of Har-Ber High School in Arkansas. I can't find anything on the recruiting websites for him, but he has had multiple 300 yard games and looks like he has some jets in the open field. Also very productive as a defensive back. Hopefully a nice diamond in the rough!

Edit: Two other players from Har-Ber have tweeted that they have also received offers from BG. Looks like we had a coach down there hitting it hard and was impressed with this program.
