Keeley ultimately picked Alabama over Ohio State, Notre Dame, Arizona State, and Florida. Keeley is a 5-star edge rusher from Tampa, Florida per the 247Sports Composite. He is the No. 1 edge rusher and No. 3 Florida prospect from the 2023 class.

The other B1G schools that were interested in Keeley were Michigan and Rutgers. Keeley comes in at 6-foot-6, 242 pounds. Keeley recently visited Ohio State in September.

“I would like to thank all the Berkeley faculty for welcoming me with open arms and giving me relationships for life! Thank you to my teammates and coaches for pushing me everyday to be better. I will be continuing my academic and athletic career at the University of Alabama.”
