The Hawkeyes were the first to offer Keppy and when offered he quickly accepted becoming the first in 2012 recruiting class.

Keppy in High SchoolThere is really a lot about Keppy as a high school football player out there. He plays for Riverdale High School where his father is the defensive coordinator. The Rams were not very good last year and finished just 2-8.
