IU Football Is Back: Top QB Recruit Signs with Indiana

July 28, 2011 Leave a comment

(Sports Illustrated)–“It was just the best fit for me,” Kiel said a few hours before making his decision on a trip to Indiana with his parents. “I woke up having that gut feeling and felt really good about it and my parents were excited about it too.”

As a junior, Kiel threw for nearly 2,700 yards and 36 touchdowns while rushing for another 600 yards and eight scores. Ranked by 247Sports as the nation’s 10th overall prospect, he plans to graduate from high school a semester early to enroll on campus in January, just days after he caps his prep career as an Under Armour All-American.

He will join his brother Dusty, a current redshirt sophomore quarterback, at Indiana. The older Kiel is the favorite to win the Hoosiers’ starting quarterback job this fall.  “The thing that kind of stood out to me the most about Indiana is I have family over there,” Kiel said. “Having a brother playing the same position as me, at first I thought that was a negative but I realized it’s such a positive. Nobody is going to have my back more than him. He’s going to help me go over the playbook and I’ll probably learn it a lot quicker with him helping me.”

Little brothers are such a pain in the ass.  Dusty Kiel is up at Indiana just doing his thing.  Waiting to crack the lineup when his snot nosed little brother decides to just tag along rather than go to his choice of BCS contenders. Why would anybody go to Indiana when they could write their ticket to any real school in the country if he wasn’t just trying to be a pain in the ass?

 

PS: Choosing Indiana over Notre Dame is like turning down Kate Upton to go out with Khloe Kardashian
