Jack Keeler not interested in OSU offer

By Jared Shanker


If he were still the coach of Wisconsin, Bret Bielema might be a little upset with Urban Meyer again.

A year after the Ohio State coach flipped Kyle Dodson from the Badgers, Meyer offered another offensive tackle committed to Wisconsin.

Four-star Barrington (Ill.) offensive tackle Jack Keeler picked up an offer from Ohio State on Thursday, he said. Unlike Dodson, though, he will not be flipping or even considering the Buckeyes.

"I'm solid," he said.

Keeler originally was a little iffy about the Wisconsin coaching situation Tuesday but has solidified his commitment and is officially visiting this weekend. He will leave for Madison after school tomorrow, he said.

He is the No. 31 tackle nationally and a top-10 prospect in Illinois.

Bielema chided Meyer earlier this year for going after one of his and several other Big Ten commitments in the 2012 class.
