Gunner Kiel Chooses LSU

Quarterback Gunner Kiel from Columbus (Ind.) East High School has committed to LSU.

Kiel chose the Tigers over Vanderbilt and Notre Dame after previously committing to Indiana.

“I can’t wait to play in the SEC,” Kiel told 247Sports.com. “A lot of people call it the NFL of college football and it will be an exciting time. It would mean a lot to be a starting quarterback in such a great conference at a great school. I really love the players and the coaching staff (at LSU). They were all great to me on my visit and seemed very welcoming.”

That’s probably because Kiel is ranked the nation’s top pro-style quarterback by 247Sports. His commitment improves LSU’s 2012 class ranking to fourth nationally.

Kiel has already graduated high school and will enroll at LSU in January.

Report: LSU Assistant To Visit Quarterback Kiel

The recruiting nation took notice last week when quarterback Gunner Kiel reopened his recruiting.

Kiel, who had been committed to Indiana, is considered the nation’s top quarterback prospect by 247Sports.com. That’s why schools like Notre Dame (where he visited on Saturday), Alabama, Florida, Southern Cal and others will be in the mix for Kiel.

And it looks like LSU will, too. Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports wrote today that LSU quarterbacks coach Steve Kragthorpe is expected to attend Kiel’s game Friday at Columbus (Ind.) East High School.

LSU has a bye week as it prepares to play Alabama in Tuscaloosa on Nov. 5.

Kiel is one of several top prospects LSU will target thanks to the Tigers’ success on the field this year, according to JC Shurburtt of 247Sports.

“I think LSU is quietly putting out feelers to a lot of the top prospects in the 2012 class given the season the Tigers are having,” Shurburtt wrote.

LSU has 20 commitments for the class of 2012 but is still looking for its first pledge from a quarterback.

Athlete Redmond Chooses Mississippi State

Athlete Will Redmond from Memphis (Tenn.) East High School committed to Mississippi State on Monday.

Redmond chose Mississippi State over Tennessee.

It was a real hard decision,” Redmond told the Memphis Commercial Appeal. “I talked to (State) coach (Dan) Muller and he talked a lot about family. I went down there Thursday and there was just something about it.”

Mississippi State had an advantage over Tennessee because of Starkville’s proximity to Memphis.

“I’m the kind of guy where I want to come home (for the weekend) on a Friday,” said Redmond, who’s considered the nation’s 30th-best athlete by Rivals.com. “It’s only 2 1/2 hours away. And my mom can come see me play.”
