    Keys legal problems

    Keys was a possible darkhorse candidate for a tOSU offer-In light of LI & IG I am not so sure tOSU wants to take on Keys and his baggage.

    Yeah, I would assume his latest brush with the law pretty much eliminated any chances he had in getting an offer. When will these kids learn? :bonk:

    this kid wont even get a look from coach T now, due to the stuff going on the last few days.

    It seems like Keys just cant seem to get away from his off the field problems. He now has got his 14 or 15 year old girlfriend pregnant. Now I know this can happen to anyone, but this probably is another knock on his recruitment, especially from Tressel. I wish him the best of luck, but his off the field problems just keep piling up.

    EDIT: Based on poster's personal knowledge and belief, not on a published report.

    He ran a 4.35 40 at NW camp. But only has an offer from KSU- tOSU still among his favorites. Greg is someone who could earn some offers with a good senior season.
  10. Don't read into the Keys off field problems too much

    folks, i'm close to the Bellevue football program. i can HONESTLY tell you that Greg had no plans on pleading guilty of something he DID NOT DO until after the Nike Camp and not receiving any interest from colleges. The Perkins kid involved (Richardson) had an offer to BG on the table but it was pulled when word got out about a possible Felony charge. The way it has looked is that many schools cooled off when finding out that a felony charge was hanging over these kids head. Greg has maintained his stand of NOT GUILTY until the risk of a college schollarship was in question.

    he has made some poor decisions theres no doubt about that but the legal issue's can be put to rest.

    there is so many question marks or Red Flags involved in this whole vandilism charge that its become too much for one to beleive.

    Greg and the kids involved have NEVER gotten along and the Sandusky kid involved cursed at Greg during a scrimmage and tried to start a fight with him. Then why does it take more than a year for these charges to take place? the Judge also happened to have a son who played football at near by Huron (who was one game out behind Perkins for the league title). Perkns was to play the toughest game left on the schedule and the judge locks both up in DH for not the normal 3 days but a full week and then let them out the morning after the biggest game of the regular season for both schools....hmmmmm?

    the judge refused to even listen to the schools superintendent who was there in Keys behafe. A smart kid with a 3.5 gpa and never getting in trouble with the law before was in DH while the Dean kid from Sandusky was on the street after previous drug, rape and other runin's with the law......and to beleive they took the word of a kid who had a long rap sheet? WOW

    look for Greg this coming season. he'll loses 4 of his O-linemen but he has that special speed and size combo to overcome the new OL.

    btw: Greg has an offer from Kent State and has film out to more than 30 schools including most the Big10 and Big12

    These kind of stories make me sick. So many kids who would die to be in Keys position, or in Irizary's position. The law is the law and it applies to everyone. Racial slurs are awful but not against the law. Vandalism is no better or worse than racial slurs, but definitely against the law. No two ways about it. When these kids get into the spotlight they should get a second chance, but that's it. No third or fourth or fifth chances. Give these scholarships to kids who deserve it and will respect it. What is going on down at Miami with Willie Williams is unacceptable. He is now getting his twelth chance. Stupid really!

    Thanks for the insight XBellevueplayar!

    Hopefully he has a good season, keeps his nose clean and earns some big time offers (maybe even the Bucks). There is no doubt that he is a heck of an athlete.

    Keep us posted on his progress!

    will do..... Greg had never been in trouble with the law before and i don't expect to see him making headlines other than is athletic acheivments in the future. smart kid in the classroom and came across very humble and respectful the ONE time i talked with him.

    btw: saw on another site that Greg ran a 4.35 consistantly at the Northwestern camp and ran ALL the drills very well.......sounds like more offers could be coming SOON........

    What did the judge give him for a sentance? If He has never been in trouble before and is a good student and stays incident free from here on out I hope He gets a few nice offers and makes the most of the oppurtunities given him.

    Greg i beleive got probation.......this was his first time being introuble with the law and no one thinks it will be a continuing problem as many feel he was either in the wrong place at the wrong time or just had nothing at all to do with the incident......
