Keller Decision Expected This Week

Regardless of the circumstances behind the sudden and unexpected demotion of Sam Keller as Arizona State quarterback, one thing is clear: If he wants to transfer, plenty of teams are interested. Keller's father, Sam, told the Arizona Republic that he has spoken with Oklahoma, Colorado, Louisville and Texas El Paso, and that Notre Dame and Iowa also have interest. Of course, Nebraska remains in the mix and Cornhusker coach Bill Callahan confirmed Tuesday that Keller has received a release from Arizona State to talk with Nebraska. Sam said his son could even return to Arizona State and redshirt, then finish his undergraduate degree and transfer under the new NCAA rule allowing such a move without sitting out. "Everyone thinks this is easy. People want him, we pull the trigger. That isn't the case. It's been emotional and stressful. It's put us in a tremendous bind," Sam said. Keller's mother, Melissa Coveney, told the Lincoln Journal Star that an announcement on her son's future should come by Thursday. Thanks to Cactus Ranch for the image. Update: ESPN reports that Keller has enrolled at Nebraska.
