    After two visits this month to Columbus, Ohio State has to feel good about where it stands with five-star 2023 defensive end Keon Keeley.

    While it should be noted no commitment appears imminent, and Keeley likely fully intends to make his scheduled official visit to Alabama on Oct. 8, the talented pass rusher and his family wouldn’t have made a trip to OSU on their own dime if the Buckeyes weren’t in clear consideration for the 6-foot-6, 242-pound standout.

    While Keeley did take an unofficial visit to Florida on Sept. 10, this is essentially turning into a two-horse race between the Crimson Tide and the Buckeyes. 2023 Ohio State offensive line commit Joshua Padilla said Keeley told him as much while on the visit.

    “The visit was good, I talked to Keon, asked him how he liked everything and he said it's between Ohio State and Alabama,” Padilla told Eleven Warriors. “I told him the culture here at Ohio State is one of a kind and told him why I came to Ohio State.”

    On both visits, Keeley was all smiles entering Ohio Stadium, and his celebrity only grew on his second visit, with fans asking him for autographs and for pictures. He was also a popular man among Ohio State’s football staff with nearly every OSU coach coming over pregame to say hello, along with Mark Pantoni and Gene Smith.

    On Keeley’s end, his mother Janické told 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong the second visit was by all accounts successful. But a decision doesn’t seem approaching any time soon.

    "Looking forward to our Alabama visit and will take a few weeks to think," Janické told 247Sports.
